The tests at the bottom are inside the same DIV tag as the top ten stats but yet the DIV box does not extend with them, how can I fix this?

Attached is the CSS code

Hi,

in line 130 you have height:250px.

If you delete that line, the div element with class .contentMenuBoxInside will extend over test...test...test text.

You set a height on ".contentMenuBoxInside" which is insufficient to hold all of its content, hence the content is overflowing. Simply remove the height declaration or use min-height instead.

The min-height did the trick!  Thanks.
