hello everyone,

i've been pulling my hairs on this one.

i have a layout designed and i want to produce the html and CSS.
what i want is that the layout fills the screen by stretching towards the right and bottom, according to what's inside the "content" area.
my problem is having the left side stretch vertically as needed, so that it joins the footer.
the structure of the page blocks would be: (attached img is clearer)

|--------------------------------------------------|
| HEADER |
|--------------------------------------------------|
| LEFTTOP | CONTENT |
| fixed height | |
|----------------- | |
| | |
| LEFTBOTTOM | |
| stretches | |
| backgrnd img | |
| repeat-y | |
| | |
|---------------------------------------------------|
| FOOTER |
|---------------------------------------------------|

any idea how to do this ? please help, it's urgent !!

thanks a great lot,

alx

how to make this without tables so that it fills the screen

I wrote a topic a while ago about this (do a search, I haven't done that many posts). Someone replied with a link to about 4 websites that do what you want. I think it was called 'Noob 100% question'.
