Understanding the wrapper

Hello, I'm having difficulties trying to understand how the wrapper works, or I think the problem may also be caused by the float and/or clear attributes? In my example I have a wrapper which holds two boxes, when I type code in the boxes they expand automatically downwards but my wrapper remains static, it won't expand as I type in to the two boxes. Does it mean I have to explicitly set a height to the wrapper or is it something to do with the float and/or clear attributes? I set different colors to the two boxes and the wrapper just to see if the wrapper actually expands but it won't move. Thanks for your help.
