    Default 100% height on content problem

    Hi

    Hope someone can help me out on this.

    I am building teh following site:

    http://www.jasonmillward.com/development/ToV-backend/index.php

    Basically the footer needs to be fixed to the bottom of the page which i have done by using absolute positioning. The content area of the page needs to stretch down to the bottom of the footer on any given screen resolution effectively covering the footer in the centre where the content is

    I have tried various methods to get the content area to extend down to the bottom of the page and over lap the footer but nothing seems to work.

    Does anyone know how i might acheive this?

    Thanks in advance
    Jason

    I do not see why you want the content to overlap the footer, but you can put a higher z-index on that element in the css stylesheet and it will "overlay" the footer

    sometimes our clients are not the most knowledgeable, and it is our job as developers to say I can do it that way, however I think blahblahblah would be better because of reasonreasonreason. Once you show this client the pros of having better accessibility, which creates a better user-interface and thus usability, blahblahblah, I have never had a client say, yeah okay but do it my way.

    Well said Boogyman. Too many people don't understand that.
