Floats can float up in a narrow gap, if you make them appear narrow. We
use negative back-side margins to pull that one of. Read about it here:
My example is not exactly the same as your layout, but you should get
the general idea about float-solutions:
The same source-code-- different styles:
Floats can act in mysterious ways... :-)

Increased font size (within reason) should not be a problem as long as
text and other elements stay in the sequence and don't break the layout.
A fluid/float layout can solve some of it, and the rest is a bunch of
