Quite a silly question, but I'm trying to fit a div element into the parent by setting width:100%; however its overflowing the parent, see my example in jsfiddle

As you can (hopefully) see:-
overflow
Any ideas whats going wrong? Setting the width 100%

You have 5px of padding so it sticks out 10px. Try padding:5px 0.

To pad the text without affecting the width of the parent div you could put the text in a span tag and pad that.

There also appears to be something funky with your jQuery. When you click on a title that is already selected, the .divBody for the title collapses and then expands again. I'm not sure if this is the desired effect, but it just behaves different than I was expecting.
