box

A container element which can contain any number of child elements. If the box has an orient attribute that is set to horizontal, the child elements are laid out from left to right in the order that they appear in the box. If orient is set to vertical, the child elements are laid out from top to bottom. Child elements do not overlap. The default orientation is horizontal.

More information is available in the XUL tutorial.
