View Full Version : Min-Height in Opera 9.23 Not Working

12-13-2007, 02:32 PM
I want the web page to be at least as high as the browser window. The following CSS code works in IE 5+ and Firefox but not Opera. What am I missing?

Here is the CSS

* {
margin: 0px;
border: 0px;
padding: 0px;

body {
background-color: #9C9DA0;

div#global { position: absolute;
top: 0%;
left: 50%;
margin-left: -390px;
width: 780px;
min-height: 100%;
background-color: #FFFFFF;

* html body div#global {
height: 100%;

Here is the HTML


<div id="global"> </div><!-- end global -->

Never mind. I figured out the problem...

It seems when using a percentage (e.g., 100&#37;), Opera needs the body tag to have its height specified. So I added height:100% to the body tag and everything works fine.
