I cant get my shadow on the side of my page to take up the whole height of the page.

I have set it at 100% along with the container divs and the .body attribute but still have no luck.
On IE it is even worse as the shadow doesnt even sit on the right hand side of the page.

PLEASE HELP ME...I am at my wits end I just cant figure this out I hope that someone out there can.

The page is www.vander.co.nz

the CSS is www.vander.co.nz/Main.css

Validate, validate, validate.

How many html and body tags does one page need?

Let's get those errors cleared up before going on.

Are you talking about www.vander.co.nz ? If so, I count three opening html tags, three opening body tags, three closing html tags and three closing body tags.

The error messages are mostly self explanatory. Which ones have you stuck?

I just clicked. I have two

I just clicked. I have two 'php includes' in my file. Thats why I am seeing extra tags because I havent taken them out of the external php files.

And yes very funny my native language is english but if it wasnt for you being a smart ass I probably wouldnt of figured this out so thanks a bunch. Not everyone is a developer, I am a designer so writing code isn't exactly my expertise.

Where's that leave you?

Look, just go away if you can't be civil. The reason I asked is because some come here from non-english speaking countries (look at the last line of the first post here) and there are some here that can help with other tongues. So let's not be a jerk and you may find you can learn something here.

That's a poor excuse for not doing things properly.

Yes, of course. I'm not mad, I'm just blunt. Sue me. Tongue

Here's hoping this is a turning point and that you'll make sure that you turn out valid code from this point on. It really does make a difference.

The extra body and html tags may not be the only problem on the page. Fix that up and run it through the validator again to check.

Yes I am aware that it is full of holes. I actually wrote it a long time ago and am now realising that I went about it the wrong way.

I will fix it up when I have some spare time and validate it again.

I have fixed the errors with the validation but am still having trouble with the side shadow. After taking out the extra html and body tags the side shadow still wont take up th whole page.

Hopefully someone can shed some light on this for me.
