I seem to have similar problem to
except with the left hand column instead of content.
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...?
