re:http://www.fuzzcube.com/

You need to get rid of the fixed heights. What do you expect to happen
when there is more text than will fit in height:500px? All you have to
do is bump up the text size a couple times and it all spills out.
....
I don't really want to remove the height of the content pane (white
box) as the whole design of the site is that it all sits in that box
in the centre.
What if my window is less than 500px high?
If anything, I would want the overflow on the bodytext
div to scroll if necessary.
Like many people, I find having to scroll sections of a page
annoying, but you can do it with: overflow: auto;

Thanks very much.

Any ideas on how to make the left-nav always fill the height of the
content div and not overflow out the bottom of it.
Also, any ideas how to make the right background image (silhouette
jumping) show in full, as at the moment it only shows to the bottom of
where the text runs.

Equally as bad is when the window is much more than 500px high. Mine is
usually around 1100px.

So I get a huge amount of nothing down at the bottom of the viewport,
with a little tiny scrolling content box.

What a waste. :-\

Ok

I understand this website is not to your taste design wise, but the
question I'm asking is as quoted from above:

Any ideas on how to make the left-nav always fill the height of the
content div and not overflow out the bottom of it.
Also, any ideas how to make the right background image (silhouette
jumping) show in full, as at the moment it only shows to the bottom of
where the text runs.

Cheers
