How do I get the content place holder to adjust to screen size?

I have a site that I am using a master page with and the content pages vary in the amount of content. I have an About page that has very little info and I need the content place holder to fill the remaining area of the page and push the footer to the bottom of the viewable area so there is no scroll. I can hardcode the height for my monitor but I need this to act the same across any resolution.

there are a couple of different concepts here.

1.  "I want the footer to always be at the bottom of the browser window regardless of wether or not there is scrollable text."

2.  "I want the footer to always be at the bottom of the content, unless the content doesn't fill the screen, then put it at the bottom of the window."

Depending on which one you want will determine the way to go, but you probably dont want to mess with the contentPlaceHolder size.  You would either want to do it in CSS or put the content in side a table cell and manipulate the cell height.

This is how I would like it to work. What makes sense would be to put a minimum height in the div wrapper around my contentplaceholder, however it would need to be something along the lines of "min-height: 100% minus (height of header + height of footer)" which doesn't work.
