    I've started building a world religious resource site - major texts and articles for world religons, modern and ancient belief systems.

    Trouble with my template, though - I've attached in .html so it's obvious, in case you care to look.

    If you open the .html page you'll see a blank area at the bottom. I don't know how to close it off.

    Another slightly annoying issue is with the left-hand nav bar - the lowest cell won't stretch - instead, *all* the nev bar cells stretch when text on the main area runs too long. I'm currently having to use trial and error to set the lowest cell height so the used nav bar cells can remain at the required dimension. I've got a lot of texts to put up, so the sooner I address this the better.

    Anyway - sincere thanks for any thoughts on the matter.

    PS - Filburt - like the new design

    IT's okay - don't worry about it - after some trial and error I've created a new template. This one seems to work...thank goodness...

    ...except for a small matter I'll post in a new thread.

    Thanks!

    FYI you can make a table go all the way to the bottom of the page by using height="100%" in the <table> tag

    height percents worked in IE4.0 but not in IE5.5+ for some reason.

    what i do is:


    <script language='javascript'>

    var bch = document.body.clientHeight;
    var bcw = document.body.clientWidth;


    </script>

    <script language='javascript'>
    document.write("<table height='"+bch+"' width='100%'>")
    </script>

    Why use that when you can use normal HTML?

    Also when you resize the browser the table won't dynamically resize with the JS method.

    Thanks for the comments anyway, I remember someone telling me that IE on the Mac doesn't like percentiles mixed with non-percentile values, so I've eliminated the percentiles.

    I've managed to eliminate the ghost footer box in the original attachment, but the nav bar still stretches - so I'm stuck with a trial and error value for the last cell height.

    It works, and that's all I need. There's already a lot of work involved, so a little extra doesn't really add much.

    Thanks for the responses anyway.

    because using <table height='100%'> won't work in some versions of IE.


    and Filburt you can use:

    <script language='javascript'>


    function resize(){


    }


    window.onresize = resize();

    </script>

    Reason being that height attribute is not defined in any of the W3C HTML standards for tables.
