Hi

Given 2 divs
..container {display:block;width:800px;border:1px solid #000}
..textdiv {display:block;width:600px;border 1px solid #F18}

In the HTML :

<div class="container">
    <div class="textdiv">
            *** some text ***
    </div>
</div>

Why in IE container streches as textdiv expands and not in FF ?
How to make container behave the same in both browsers ?

TIA
