    difference in height

    Having gone to: HERE! to find out how my new webpage would display in different browsers i noticed straight away that the navigation and contents sections were of an un-equal height. The height difference varied between the browsers. Could someone come to my rescue yet again lol and tell me if there is some code i could use to keep the navigation and contents section of an equal height. Thanks in advance

    Hi cadfan,

    Not enough information! We'll need to see a link to your page (preferable) or your FULL code (both HTML and CSS), posted in [CODE][/CODE] tags, in order to assist.

    Hello cadfan,
    Have a look at this 2-column layout that uses a background color to keep the left and righ columns the same length - http://nopeople.com/CSS/equal_length_columns/index.html

    You can also do it with a full width slice of an image repeated on the y-axis. That's called the faux columns method. Demo here.

    Does that help?

    Hiya both

    Have resolved the problem by giving each of the text link boxes an height.
    Thanks for taking the time out to reply though. Cheers
