IE min height COMMENTS

Welcome to my Comments Pages

Please note. I get a few hundred emails a week from visitors asking for help, or posing questions on how to modify my demos to suit their application and I read them all. Unfortunately I only have a limited amount of time to spend answering these questions.

So if I do not reply, please do not be offended, and if I do reply then you are one of the lucky ones.

If you are asking for permission to use any of my demonstration then please email me with your request stu{at}

Thanks a lot Stu! You helped me out with this hack. I tried the min-height hack from Dave, but for some reason that didn't work. (in FF that is!!) Probably due to some complex floats-in-floats or something. So when I found your solution and it worked, you made a happy man. Thanks, great site here

Mason Galindo:-
I often find myself returning to your site for cool menu ideas, various CSS techniques, and answers to my CSS questions.

Thanks so much Stu! Much appreciated!

De facto height in IE = min-height. It even said officially in Microsoft.

GreLI, yes, but you cannot use min-height with IE. So this is a workaround to use 'min-height' with non IE browsers and 'height' for IE.

Thanks for this so very much!

I rememberd what Cities of Gold was a while back - with Esteban right?

Some cool code here ;)

Do you know of a method to align three div boxes placed side by side with identical min heights, and then to get all three box heights to increase to identical heights if one of the boxes has more text than the others? (Sorry if I've explained this badly - I hope you know what I mean)

Sam, if they are individual boxes then there is no way that css can size them all to the longest. You will need to use javascript.

Dear Stu,

Thank you, this code was easy to understand, easy to implement.

I do have one question, so I can understand what you did here. I don't understand what these lines of code do:


Would you please comment on what IE "sees" and what it interprets in these lines - if you have the time... :)
