which div?
Bob SchneiderCo-OwnerAuthor Commented:
It seems like the list of events on the left is overflowing the "wrap" div.

but how did you test it without having the data so much enough that it expands? right now there is no data overflowing out of it
Chris StanyonWebDevCommented:

Because you're using position:absolute and floats you are taking certain elements out of the document flow. You have a height: 100% on the wrap div and this will only give you 100% height of the window. If your content is longer than the window then the content will appear to overlap.

A few things you need to do to fix it.

On your vertical navigation div, remove the rules for left, position and top and add clear:both;margin-left:10; padding-top:20px

Remove height and min-height from the wrap div and add overflow:hidden; padding-bottom:10px

That should sort you out.
