Full Version: DHTML links and fixed height right rail - Page length?
HTMLHelp Forums > Web Authoring > Markup (HTML, XHTML, XML)
I am trying to make a page that has a DTML (dynamic expanding links), and a right hand column - Below is my code.

I want to make the right hand colunm (most common questions grey area) a fixed height.

It seems to be the length of the page as if all the menus are clicked on and opened even if they are closed.

How can I make it a fixed height regardless of how many links (dhtml) are opned or not so that most common questions are no longer than say 500 pixles.

Any suggestions would be handy.
