                <div class="wrapper">

<h1>display: flow-root example</h1>

<p>A new value of the display property that will enable containers to clear floats. <em>Needs Chrome Canary or Firefox Nightlies.</em></p>

<h2>Default behavior</h2>

<p>The following item is a wrapper containing a block that is floated left.</p>

<div class="container container1">
  <div class="item"></div>
  Example one
 <p>The border on the containing block only wraps the text as the floated element is taken out of flow.</p>
  <p>The content following the box will also rise up and wrap around the float unless we set it to clear.</p>

<h2 class="clear">The clearfix hack</h2>

<p>In this next item we use a clearfix hack to cause the wrapper to clear the floated item.</p>

<div class="container container2">
  <div class="item"></div>
  Example two

<h2>Using display: flow-root</h2>

<p>CSS now has a way to cause elements to clear floats. We set the value of display to flow-root and our floated box is cleared.</p>

<div class="container container3">
  <div class="item"></div>
  Example three


.container2::after {
  content: "";
  display: block;
  clear: both;

.container3 {
  display: flow-root;

.container {
  border: 2px solid #3bc9db;
  border-radius: 5px;
  background-color: #e3fafc;
  width: 400px;
  padding: 5px;

.item {
  height: 100px;
  width: 100px;
  background-color: #1098ad;
  border: 1px solid #0b7285;
  border-radius: 5px;
  float: left;

h2 {
  padding: 2em 0 0 0;

.clear {
  clear: both;

body {
  font: 18px Helvetica, sans-serif;

.wrapper {
  max-width: 600px;
  margin: 40px auto;
