Have a look at this example pen:
QUESTION: Is it possible to get div Four and Five to move up beside div Two without changing the order of the divs in the HTML or using absolute positioning?
Any help much appreciated.
There are a couple of things you could do.
One would be to not float Four or Five at all and remove their width. They would be full width, but the other floats would take up the left 75% and leave Four and Five to right of Two.
Another would be to give Four a top margin of -55px and Five a top margin of -35px. This would require that div Two and have a known and static height.
Thanks very much wolfcry911.
I also discovered changing divs four and five to be display:inline-block; instead of float:right; works too.
