    Check out this section of my site:

    http://www.bondmovies.com/tabs

    I just added a cool little footer image to every page of my site. For big pages, it looks great, because you scroll to get to the bottom. The problem is with the smaller pages, like the one I posted.

    Is there any way to get that footer image all the way down to the bottom?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to my world.

    Since you are using tables however, this is a much easier problem to solve. All you need to do is set your main table height to 100%
    (i.e. <table height=100%>Table Contents</table>) and make sure you give the td's you DON'T want to stretch all the way down the page a hardcoded height.

    Although this is not standards compliant and the height functionality was deprecated in the latest HTML version (4.01 i think), it works.

    Odd. When I put in the height="100%"in this page:

    http://www.bondmovies.com/firsts/firsts.shtml

    ...the invisible table seems to extend further down than I want it to. Any ideas?

    Well first of all, the table that contains your footer is OUTSIDE of the table with the 100% height! So, before you do anything else, move that entire table inside the 100% table.

    Also, the td that has your content has a height of 800, which on most resolutions will make the page scroll vertically. I suggest just removing the height property altogether for this td.

    Lastly, I dont think this is causing your problem, but wierdly you have a </div> tag after the first table in your code, and you don't have a a <div> tag anywhere in your page!?! I would remove this right away.

    Well I put that code in my CSS page, and nothing happened to all of my site pages. Do I have to denote somewhere on each page where the footer begins?

    Actually, I think what he's trying to say is you may wish to change the vertical-align property to "bottom".

    And yes, you would have to have a table or table row with that particular class in order for it to work.

    So in the footer I would put something like this:

    HTML Code:
    <style="footer">stuff stuff stuff</style>
