Use of overflow: hidden; on nested divs

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Richard Rundle, Dec 18, 2005.

  1. On one of my pages,

    http://www.fchd.btinternet.co.uk/cups/favase1974-75.htm

    I'm using overflow: hidden to keep the desired presentation of the content
    of div's in two columns within another div. I started putting this together
    some time ago, so I can't remember where I got that idea from. It certainly
    came from somewhere else, I wouldn't have thought of that myself.

    My question is, is that a "proper" use of the overflow property, and if not,
    are there any suggestions to re-code appropriately? The basic HTML
    validates, and I think I've used the HTML elements in their correct semantic
    manner (most of the time anyway!)
