View Full Version : div align help?

09-04-2011, 10:40 AM
I have this site MY PAGE (http://syco-designz.webs.com/index.html)

As you can see the right side navigation div is not aligned to the bottom like the left. I have tried overflow:auto and inherit also tried height:auto and inherit. Has anyone got and idea what else to try?

Check below working code:

You need to
1. remove margin properties from left and right DIVs
2. add overflow property to content.
3. define DOCTYPE as I did in below code...

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<link href="css/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<style type="text/css">
#content {
border-color: #A5A5A5;
border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px;
margin-left: 10%;
margin-right: 10%;
#right {
border-color: #A5A5A5;
border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px;
float: right;
font-family: sans-serif;
font-size: x-small;
text-align: center;
width: 30%;
#left {
border-color: #A5A5A5;
border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px;
height: auto;
width: 69%;
#navigation {
color: black;
font-family: Utsaah;
height: auto;
letter-spacing: 0.2em;
text-transform: uppercase;
#nav li {
list-style: none outside none;
#nav a {
color: #1A5272;
text-decoration: none;
#nav a:hover {
color: #4FB3EC;
text-decoration: underline;
#nav a.active {
color: #0D3850;
font-weight: bold;
text-decoration: none;


<div id="content">

<div id="right">

<div id="navigation">
<ul id="nav">

the overflow only takes effect on whatever side is larger how do i get the smaller sides (right side) height to take the same as the outside/bottom(content) height?

assign height to content DIV and then assign height:100% to both (left and right) DIVs :)
