Hello,

Yes, the parent element is inherited by the child element so the nested DIVs will also float right.  In the CSS, a clear float DIV should follow the closing tag of the parent DIV.

CSS
.basicdiv3rows {
  float:right;
}
.clearfloat {
  clear:both;
}

Open in new window


HTML
<div class="basicdiv3rows">
  <div class="row1">art</div>
  <div class="row2-horizontallinemain-artandculture">culture</div>
  <div class="row3">life</div>
</div>
<!-- remove or comment out line below if you do not want a line break after the floated divs -->
<div class="clearfloat"></div>
<div>
Next line
</div>

Open in new window


Here is an example from the code above:
