Here is a Great Article in Understanding Floats.

If you all are like me, you need additional resources to understand some of the things explained in the videos. One issue for me was Floats and Clears. I came across this article from A List Apart. Thought I'd share it with others. It has given me a much better understanding of how floats and clears actually work and issues associated with them and fixes.

As a side note. I was on another forum where someone posted this article in the comments. I do not recall the forum it was posted in. So much appreciation to whoever originally posted this on Team Tree House.

This is a bit old, but still relevant. Chris Coyier over at css-tricks.com always nails making ideas that have been overcomplicated, nice and concise.

No problem Gary! Like i said, the post is a bit old but still good. Css-tricks is a great site and I highly recommend you poke around and do some searches. You're likely to find some great, well, tricks! haha
