IE7 float and clear on the same element

Here is my code,

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    <title>[your title]</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    .a, .b, .c
    {
        float: left;
    }
    .b
    {
        clear: left;
    }
    </style>
</head>
<body>
<div class="a">1</div>
<div class="b">2</div>
<div class="c">3</div>
</body>
</html>

In IE8, firefox, chrome, safari, opera, the output will be:

1 23

However in IE7:

13 2

I have search for solutions two days already... anyone can help?

Cheers, bGiraffe

</body>


this should fix it

.a, .b, .c { float: left; }
.b { clear: both; }

Or you could use the clearfix technique.
