Problem hiding div within div

Hello to everyone. Not too long ago I began working with css files. The problem I am currently having is hiding a div within a div. My overall jsp page looks like the following:

The relevenat portions of my css are as follows:

The problem i am having is as follows. The pages I am creating are being built as jsps and as blocks (tiles) and then assembled together. I can call one of the subunits of the page delimited by the following div:

What I wish to add to my css file is the ability ( once the subunit containing only the above div is isolated) to have the display property of the <div id="image"> set to none when not encased by the <div id="contenant">.

Any help would greatly be appreciated. I am sorry if the question is not very clear.

If there is nothing else in that wrapper div, why don;t you just hide that one by setting the display to none?

you could also try something like

#contenu div {display:none;}

I agree. Here's the link:
