    Hi guys,

    As this is my first post first of all I would like just to introduce myself to you all. I am an amateur web designer, coding web sites just for fun and the teach myself something new. The basis of my site is an online rpg i used to play and my love of motor sports and sim racing.

    Anyhow now the introductions over.. I am having a problem coding the menu column on my new site design. At present the left column ends well before the main right hand content column when I am trying to make the sit flush with each other.

    You can see here how the menus sit http://subach-world.org.uk/index.shtml

    I have tried editing th eleft hand content code to say height: auto and inherit, etc which did nothing. I acomplished this before on a previous site but have forgotten how.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The current coding of each column is as follows;

    #leftcontent {
    position: absolute;
    left:208px;
    top:99px;
    width:200px;
    background:#fff;
    border-top:2px solid #000;
    border-right:1px solid #000;
    border-left:1px solid #000;
    border-bottom:1px solid #000;
    clear:both;
    }

    #centercontent {
    background:#fff;
    margin-left: 399px;
    margin-right:199px;
    border:1px solid #000;
    voice-family: "\"}\"";
    voice-family: inherit;
    margin-left: 401px;
    margin-right:201px;
    }

    Set the background colour of your container that centres the page to the same colour of your left column. After that, remove the bottom border for the left column, and it'll look like it's the same height as your right column.

    That's what the link above says, in a slightly less good way.

    I'd also suggest removing the bottom border of your right column, since that border and the footer one are overlapping and it looks a bit thicker than usual.
