HTML Can't Post

OK, so this is more a HTML question that Perl, but perl is involved.

I'm creating a dynamic page, which on one side is your navigation bar, and the left is the content of the page.

But, in many circumstances, my navigation is longer than my content, making the page look strange, because my content is a different coloured table.

Take a look at to see what i mean.

My Code is set out like this:

<table width=99%><tr><td>


<td valign=top>

Well, that's a simplfed version of it anyway.

Any ideas how to fill the rest of the screen towards the bottom?

Remember - it's dynamic, so i can't just add <BR><BR> on the end.

you may want to ask this question on another forum that deals with more than Perl questions if you get no replies here:

I took a quick look but there is too many embedded tables to want to try and figure it out.

If you keep your table structure like you have it in the demo2 page then the tables should do as you want:

<table width="90%" border=1 height="90%">
<td width="25%" valign="top">
<td valign="top" width="50%">
<!-- embedded table -->
<table bgcolor="RED" width="100%" border="1" height="100%">
why a separate table here?
</table><!-- end of embedded table -->
<td valign="top" width="25%">
more content here

you really should be using more modern HTML code with CSS and the box model to design your layouts.
