    I know I’ve solved this thousands of time but I’m tired and can’t remember how I always do it. Basically I have two divs:

    div1 { position: relative; width: 1000px; }
    div2 { position: absolute; height: 400px; width: 400px;}

    I placed div2 inside div1:



    Div1 collapses and will not contain the absolutely positioned item. I tried overflow: hidden; like I do for floats but that doesn’t work Can someone please push me in the rght direction?

    Thanks.
