    Default another 100% height problem

    I seem to have similar problem to
    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=31290

    except with the left hand column instead of content.
    http://www.equinepainting.co.uk/test.htm
    I'd like the left column to extend to same height as content - or to total height of screen.

    As you'll probably recognise I'm at the moment borrowing bits of code from the examples here. Which otherwise work great.

    height 100% doesn't do anything to it - trying to use absolute positioning makes the left column disappear altogether! the web page is using
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
    which seems to be right thing for 'height' to work according to other thread...?

    any ideas?

    Use the faux columns technique.

    ah thanks, think I might have got a working variation based on that idea

    background colour of page same colour as buttons/ left column and my content in table which has background image filling in the gap - looks OK so far.... (I think I'm stuck with table for that part anyway as its a bit beyond me to layout in CSS!)

    thanks for help, I've stopped banging head against brick wall getting the CSS element to expand now!
