Morning gentlemen. Firstly I owuld like to say thank you and congrats on such a nice tool. The generator is a smooth piece of work. I used it as a basis for learning how to redesign and code a website I am working on and have a few questions about some changes I am making to it.

htm page
css page

1. I have added a background image to the Maincol and it fits flush against the footer in Opera, but does not in IE.

2. I would like to add a background image for the rest of the page, either Outer or Inner, but all attempts have come up short (border width seems to cover up the bg image with bgcolor on th eleft col.).

3. How can I go about making the page dynamicly 100% in height?

Thank you,
GAb

1) I am looking at this with IE6 and background image is flush with footer.

2) You are correct and nothing can be done about it. The problem is that IE does not support Transparent borders, and adding images to borders will only be supported in CSS3.

3) Again the problem is with IE and how it treats height. Setting 100% means nothing as it shrinks back to the size of the content.

To the outer div add this

height:100%;

then put this in CSS separately but it must follow the above change( ie put it straight after the other #outer

* html #outer{height: 500px} /*only IE can read this*/

Of course for the IE size you can have what ever you want.

Regards
Day

The only way to learn is to do it yourself
