thank you spartanicus,

finally an answer ; )

I applied the CSS above to a test-html document, and it stretches to
full height of the viewport. Unluckily I am now confronted with two
1) There is an unwanted large amount of space between the signature
after the first article and the header of the second.
2) the margins to the left and right of the textbox (made them with a
background picture) - and at least in mozilla - its background color
don't stretch to the bottom of the viewport.

Is absolute positioning causing this behaviour?

I provided example html
(http://tomasio.laudatio.com/jobs/Cla...st_height.html) and css
(http://tomasio.laudatio.com/jobs/Cla...est_height.css) and a link
to the inital site (with the correct spacing between articles,
signatures and headers), which can be found here:

this is my final request for now, because i can finally go on with
building the site i am commissioned after solving the problems above

http://firasd.org/ The divs of the 'box' class seem to have the effect I want in IE (namely: consistent height and horizontal alignment along the set of divs), but it totally falls apart in Firebird, like the p's inside teh divs are independent of the div's properties... (looked okay until I applied "display: inline;") What would be the proper way (I'm assuming that Firebird is displaying the proper behaviour)?

I would like to do something that seems so basic with two div's but I don't think it can be done. Tables can do it in a snap. I was convinced that css was the way to go for layout but without being able to do even the easiest things, I don't see how. Here is the table way to do the layout (I want this to work in compliance mode in all modern browsers.): <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"...

This is a totally trivial CSS problem, I'm sure, but I don't get it. I want a centered DIV with a fixed width between two other DIVs that should fill the rest of the window/viewport (= 100%). How do I achieve this? I tried width:auto for the buffer DIVs, but it didn't work. This should at least work in IE 5.5 and Opera. A totally standards-compliant solution would be appreciated, of course ... :/ This is waht I have:

How do I center two side by side divs ? I've been writing css pages for a while but there's one thing tha still eludes me. I can center a div with margin auto. I can place two divs side by side with float. But I can't center two side by side divs. If I float them and give them auto margins, the auto margins are ignored. If I wrap the two floated divs in another div, the two divs have no

How do you get both of these div's to have a 100% width? (1): <div style="float: left; background: black; color: white">Hello, world! </div> <div style="clear: both; background: blue; color: white">Hello, world! </div> You could set the width inside the floated div to 100% but if you do that and if you have a floated fixed width div, the 100% width div will appear on a new line, as demonstrated (2):

This problem is everywhere! I have read all forums available, spent about 40+ hours on it and lost a bit of hair.
