See if this gets you in the right direction:

<div id="wrapper">
    <div id="left">
        <h2>This is the left</h2>
        <div class="content">
            This is where the content goes
        </div>
    </div>
    <div id="right">
        <h2>This is the right</h2>
        <div class="content">
            This is where the content goes
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

Open in new window

//CSS
#wrapper { width: 500px; overflow:hidden }
#wrapper h2 { text-align:center;}
#left { width: 48%; float:left; }
#right { width: 48%; float:right; }
.content { border: 1px solid green; }

Open in new window

You seem to have got your DIVs wrapped inside one another!
