please solve my problem: here is the code

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<LINK REL=StyleSheet HREF="style.css" TYPE="text/css" MEDIA=screen>
</head>
<body>

<div id="header2"><p>Header<br/><br/><br/></p></div>

<div  class="midleft"><p><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>dynamically generated content with increasing height</p></div>
<div  class="midright"><p>content 2</p></div>
<div id="footer"><p>footer</p></div>


</body>
</html>



CSS FILE.

html,body
{
      height:100%;
      
}


#header2{
      
      background-image:repeat-x;
      height:25%;
      background-color:#DDDD44;
      width:100%;
      border:groove;
}      


.midleft
{
       position:absolute;
      top:28%;
      min-height:30%;
      height:auto;
      width:50%;
      border:groove;
      padding-left:10px;
      right:32%;
}
.midright
{
 position:absolute;
      background-color:#FFF;
      width:30%;
      padding-left:20px;
      border:groove;
      height:29%;
      top: 28%;
      right:0%;
      
}


#footer {
      position:absolute;
    bottom:0%;
      min-height:50px;
    height:auto;
      width:100%;
      padding-top: 20px;
      padding-bottom: 10px;
      border:groove;
      
        }


I want the division tag  of dynamically generated content to be in center position(as i have placed already) and the footer to go down as the height of the division tag  of dynamically generated content expands(which is not happening as you can see it clashes with the footer) and the remaining thing to be as it is.

you have corrected my problem 75% the only thing i wanted is to move that dynamically generated content to some where around 150px right so that i can insert an another division tag at the left.
