Hi there,

I'm having fun with my CSS and Firefox/ IE8, in that the background wrapper and properties, image, color etc aren't expanding as the content increases in size, I know that this is probably a real simple fix, I just can't remember how to do it?

Please let me know if you need me to post my CSS and or HTML?

Many thanks

This is a solution:

You have height set in wrap800 remove this.

then at the bottom of the wrap800 div in html add
<div style="clear:both;"></div>

Open in new window

Sorry,
You need to add a new div at the bottom of the wrap800 div.

<div id="wrapp800">
<!--stuff in div then at bottom-->
 
<div style="clear:both;"></div>
</div>

Open in new window
