Ok, I'm building something and trying to work out the css.

For some reason, the overall parent div seems to be ending prematurely. The surrounding border cuts through the middle of the divs within it.

I haven't been able to figure it out.

This doesn't look right because I've taken it off the page to isolate this section, but if you take a look, you can see how the border is slicing through the middle: http://shoutkey.com/handcuff

Why is it doing that, what I am doing wrong here?

Thanks for any help,

Chris
