css layout generator

Unfortunatley, there is no foolproof way of filling the entire screen using only CSS. The CSS layout generator will only generate using what you put into it.

Have a lok for stu's posts and wensite, and maybe have a look at alistapart.com.

Actually, there's a great article at stu's site, I based my site on it:

mktangsoodo.vze.com

The code makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to me, but it works. It uses a page, and iframe page, and a whole lot of divs and negative positioning.

css layout generator

Hi damara23,
You only need to give values for the width of the left column and height of the header and footer.
Just try about 150px for each of those then adjust them to what you want later.
The center column should fill any space.

Hope that helps
