Ah, sorry for not being more specific: 
The example page I've created is a simplified version of the actual page

The red box does in fact need to be floated due to other dependant and
related page elements.

Dont float the box. Is there a reason you are floating it? Seems in
this example that absolute positioning would achieve the effect you
are after?
