  • Div height help.


    I have 3 div sections.

    Scenario: One a bottom thats is the underlay of of the main content on the left side and then the right side div that is floated to the right and is not inside the bottom div.

    Problem: I want the bottom one to have the same height as the context how do i do this.

    Tried: Giving them the height: inherit; but doesnt do anything it just keeps the height the same as the right section.

    Help: Any would be good. Thanks

        inherit means, taking height of its parent element if defined.. if parent element does not have any height defined.. then inherit will not work....

        also there are many typo in your code as following...

        closing <div> is missing

        font-family: Georgia; serif; extra semi-colon in your #navigation { ....}
