I'm currently redesigning my personal site in XHTML/CSS and it's progressing ... still several tweaks I need to make. Wink I'm wondering if anybody could help me get my sidebar div's to stretch to the full height of the page. I've tried using height: 100%; and such, but nothing seems to work. I even tried wrapping all the content in another div. I've been hacking around but it still doesn't work in IE, Firefox, Konqueror or Opera.

Here's my testing ground for the new layout.

Here's a link to the CSS file I'm playing around with.

Thanks in advance. Laughing out loud

Div not stretching to bottom of page

Hi soda_popstar,
You might have to give the impression of full length columns using background images.
Here's an article on a similar topic

Hope that helps
