    CSS Layout Help


    The site I'm working on is located at the following address:

    http://www.solinari.net/div.php

    On the left, the navigation is in two pieces - a left and a right piece. I need to have both pieces extend to the bottom of however long the page is. The bottom div's of both pieces of the navigation each have an image repeating vertically, my question is how to get the div to extend to the bottom of the page. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards, Solinari

    There are a number of ways to achieve the results you want. The problem is that you don't have semantically or structurally correct HTML to work with. I've attached a screen cap from Lynx. That's pretty much what you wrote, minus the style elements. It's also what assistive technology ie. screen readers, Braille, &c. will render.

    Refactor your content with HTML markups that correctly reflect the semantics and structure of your elements. Once there is HTML to define the content, style rules may be developed to create the layout you desire. Look at css Zen Garden fully realize the separation between HTML and style.
