There are probably a thousand reasons why I'm wrong about this, but it 
seems to me that this is where the CSS box model becomes very annoying. 
Because margins / borders / padding are added to the width of the div, 
rather than incorporated into it, you can't add margins / borders / padding 
to either of these divs without this layout breaking, because the total 
width will then be more than 100%.

Cheers,
Noah
