    Can you 'clear' abs. positioned items?

    Level 7
      I don't normally work a whole lot with absolutely positioned items, but am
      doing some HTML for a friend who has insisted on using a rather
      layered/textured randomly positioned design and it's actually making sense
      in this case.

      Is it possible to 'clear' an absolutely positioned item like you can a
      float?

      For instance:

      wrapperDiv a position: relative
      contentDiv b position: absolute
      contentDiv c position: absolute


      Anyway to ensure that div a extends to encompass b and c? My guess is no,
      there isn't, and that I'll just have to use floats in this case, but thought
      i'd check in here first...
