Why is that the various height options in CSS seem so poorly implemented? Width, seems to have settled down — browsers are happy with set widths, liquid widths, etc. Heights? not so happy. Here’s my current example:
I have a box, that’s 400px high. Ideally, it would actually be min-height:400px, so that it would expand beyond as necessary. But lots of browsers don’t understand min-height, so for their sake, I’ve just set it to 400px.
So what does this mean? it means I can’t have a vertically-exanding menu inside a set-height layout (you know, like one of those squares in the middle of the page that some site have) that works in Safari. Now, I’m quite willing to believe that I’m missing some simple fix, but if so, I can’t find it. If you’ve got one, or think you may have one, please let me know. I’m also happy to send you a link to the site I’m building for you to see for yourself. But for various reasons, I don’t want to simply publish a link to the dev site of this client for the world to see.
