hi

in css i have a division tag that can vary in size(accepts input dynamically).

now i want the outside division tag to also expand according to the inner division tag.

for example:

<div id="body">
<div id="content1"></div>
<div id="content2"></div>
</div>





now if the height of the content1 division tag expands(by giving height as auto) i want content2 to go down according to the height of content1 and also the body division tag to expand according to the height of content1.


Thanks in advance.

i need to position the content1 from top 50px(from body division tag)
 and content 2 from bottom 0px(from body division tag)
