Hi,
I'm currently creating my html/css template for my site.
I have the site split into 2 sections (Header, Content)
My Content area is also split into 3 sections. This is because I have sliced the image that will be the background of my content. The first section shows the top of the rounded box for the content. The Second shows the whitespace (Area that will show content). The third shows the bottom of the rounded box.

I need the middle content area to have a default height of about 500px. However, if the content requires over than 500px, it will automatically stretch to fit that page's needs.

Below is a picture of my content area. It currently is not stretching to fit all the text.

Here is my HTML. And below that is my stylesheet.

<html>
<head>
<title>Template</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles/style.css" />
</head>
<body bgcolor="#343331">

<!-- Header -->
<div id="header">
<div id="headerleft">&nbsp;</div>
<div id="headermiddle"><p><a href="index.php"><img src="img/logo.png"></a>&nbsp;</p></div>
<div id="headerright">
</div>

</div>

<!-- Content Top -->
<div id="contenttop">

</div>

<!-- Content Middle -->
<div id="contentmiddle">
<div id="content">
Hello<br />
</div>
</div>

<!-- Content Bottom -->
<div id="contentbottom">

</div>

</body>
</html>



#header{

background:url(../img/bggreen_header.png) no-repeat;

#contentmiddle{
width: 912px;
height: 500px;
background:url(../img/content_middle.png);
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
z-index: 10;
}
#contentbottom{
width: 912px;
height: 30px;
background:url(../img/content_bottom.png) no-repeat;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
}
#content{
width: 850px;
height: 100%;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
z-index: 20;
}
img{
border: none;
}

Thanks.

How about this:

#contentmiddle{
width: 912px;
min-height: 500px;
background:url(../img/content_middle.png);
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
z-index: 10;
}
