Contact Page not Two Column - The contact details floats to the right, but underneath the General information section.

See title. The contact details floats, but it floats to the right underneath the general info section. It does this regardless of the min-width of the window. Below is the code.

@media screen and (min-width: 480px) {

/******************************** TWO COLUMN LAYOUT *********************************/

#primary { width: 50% float: left; }

#secondary { width: 40%; float: right; }


@media screen and (min-width: 660px) {

I'm having trouble loading workspaces to recreate your problem, but just looking at the code I think I have two ideas: you need a semicolon (;) after your primary column width declaration. As it, it won't respect the 50% width rule you have. Also try changing the float on your secondary column to left.

DANGIT, I just saw the lack of a semicolon, I do that all the time!

That fixed it! Thanks!

No problem! :) I'm glad you got it fixed.
