I'd like these captions to push the paragraph below down but it's not - even if i assign a height - the height displays in the css but the paragraph doesn't get pushed down.

<dl class='gallery-item'>
                  <dt class='gallery-icon'>
                        <a href='http://www.flash-cam.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/New-York-1.jpg' title='Solutions: Graffiti'><img width="262" height="196" src="http://www.flash-cam.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/New-York-1-262x196.jpg" class="attachment-thumbnail" alt="Solutions: Graffiti" title="Solutions: Graffiti" /></a>
                  </dt>
                        <dd class='wp-caption-text gallery-caption'>
                        Before Q-Star
                        </dd></dl><br style="clear: both" />
                  <br style='clear: both;' />


css:
#gallery-1 dl dd.wp-caption-text{text-align:left;padding-left:10px;background:#0F6;display:block;float:left;clear:both;width:300px;height:200px;}

screen grab for dd display
