    CSS Container Height 100%

    I posted this in another "resolved" theread but I modified my CSS slightly as well as verifying it. The verification said that its all good except the overflow-x and overflow-y (which I dont know any way around)
    I'm trying to make my CSS containers full page height with my footer always sitting at the bottom of the page, I went by everything in the other thread and it almost works but the footer dangles off the bottom of the page, it seems that I either get this, the footer way high just at the end of the text area or in front of the text.

    any thoughts?
    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    html {
    	min-height: 100&#37;;
    }
    html, body {
    	height: 100%;
    }
    body {
    	font: 100% Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    	background: #666666;
    	margin: 0; /* it's good practice to zero the margin and padding of the body element to account for differing browser defaults */
    	padding: 0;
    	text-align: center; /* this centers the container in IE 5* browsers. The text is then set to the left aligned default in the #container selector */
    	color: #000000;
    	background-color: #000;
    	border-top-style: none;
    	border-right-style: none;
    	border-bottom-style: none;
    	border-left-style: none;
    	margin-top: 25px;
    }
    .oneColFixCtrHdr #container {
    	width: 800px;
    	margin: 0 auto; /* the auto margins (in conjunction with a width) center the page */
    	border: 0;
    	text-align: left; /* this overrides the text-align: center on the body element. */
    	background-color: #000;
    	min-height: 100%;
    }
    html #container {
    	height: 100%;
    }
    
    .oneColFixCtrHdr #header {
    	padding: 0 0px 0 0px;  /* this padding matches the left alignment of the elements in the divs that appear beneath it. If an image is used in the #header instead of text, you may want to remove the padding. */
    	background-color: #000;
    	height: 150px;
    }
    .oneColFixCtrHdr #header h1 {
    	margin: 0; /* zeroing the margin of the last element in the #header div will avoid margin collapse - an unexplainable space between divs. If the div has a border around it, this is not necessary as that also avoids the margin collapse */
    	padding: 0 0px; /* using padding instead of margin will allow you to keep the element away from the edges of the div */
    }
    .oneColFixCtrHdr #mainContent {
    	padding: 0 0px;
    	background-color: #000;
    	overflow: scroll;
    	height: 100%;
    	overflow-x:hidden;
    	overflow-y:auto;
    }
    .oneColFixCtrHdr #footer {
    	padding: 0 0px;
    	background-color: #000;
    	font-size: 10px;
    	height: 55px;
    	margin: -55px 0 0;
    	width: 800px;
    }
    .oneColFixCtrHdr #footer p {
    	margin: 0; /* zeroing the margins of the first element in the footer will avoid the possibility of margin collapse - a space between divs */
    	padding: 0px 0; /* padding on this element will create space, just as the the margin would have, without the margin collapse issue */
    }
    body,td,th {
    	color: #FFF;
    }
    -->
    </style>

    Get rid of the HTML comments I'd say. Also, border: none; is handier than setting them all individually.
    Code:
    .oneColFixCtrHdr #header {
    	padding: 0 0px 0 0px;  /* this padding matches the left alignment of the elements in the divs that appear beneath it. If an image is used in the #header instead of text, you may want to remove the padding. */
    	}
    padding: 0; Same with a few others down along the page. Don't put a unit on 0 either.

    I would have thought that footer should be on the bottom of the page. Is it totally off the page, or just a bit?

    thanks I'll try that. I ended up making it a fixed height, I'm using a larger monitor than most people who would be viewing it anyway so some of my issues were exaggerated by that.
