here's the link:

http://lesjardiniers.net/main.html

as you can see, I'm trying to fill my page with a grey border that first start off inside my flash movie and then continues on in the html page. I've never been able to do it so far, and been trying for over a month on another site i'm working on. Any clues?

here's the css:

body{}

body {
	height: 100%;
	margin: 0px;
	background-color: #232323
}


#holder {
	height: 100%;
	margin: 0px;
}

ps: why isn't my "code" tag working?

filling div difficulty

Hi Dorobr,
The code tag wasn't working because you had selected "Disable BBCode".
I fixed that and your link.
That was the easy stuff Smile

Now I don't understand what you are trying to do.
When you say

Do you mean, put a grey border around the whole page, if so how wide.
Or do you want the grey color as the background color and have the flash on top of that.
Or is it a grey border around the flash movie what you are after.

I'm sure it's really clear to you, maybe a link to something similar would help me understand.

filling div difficulty

well, i guess i wasn't using the correct word with border Wink

I simply want the 2px wide div to fill the bottom part pf my page, without any scroll appearing

Ooh I see... the thin grey line on the right, you want that extended down to the bottom?

I suggest making a background image, with the grey part at the far right (so here, 712 px wide). The image only needs to be one pixel high - makes it smaller for downloading time! Then set the background of the whole page to something like:

body {
  background: #232323;
  background-image: url("bg.png");
  background-repeat: repeat-y;
}

This will paste the image vertically on the left hand side of the body. It will also go 'under' the flash, but this shouldn't be too much of a problem.

It's notoriosly difficult to make a div stretch to the bottom of the page AFAIK (never tried myself!), there were some other threads recently on a similar tack.

You know you're a geek when you try to shoo a fly away from the monitor with your cursor.
