i want to split my spreadsheet into three horizontal blocks top, middle and bottom. I want the top to take up 15% of the screen, the middle 80% and the bottom 5%. I also want them to keep these % as the browser window is resized. Ive tried looking at relative , floating etc but havnt been able to work this one out

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
	<style>
		body, #container
		{
			height:100%;
			width:100%;
		}
			
		.header
		{
			height:15%;
			width:100%;
			background-color:black;
		}
		.content
		{
			height:80%;
			width:100%;
			background-color:blue;
		}
		.footer
		{
			height:5%;
			width:100%;
			background-color:red;
		}
	</style>
