need help with mixing pixel heights and percentages with div heights

Dec 12, 2012 10:49 AM

I have a website


Currently on high resolutions the footer is getting taller to fill the extra pixels space.  This is not what I want.  I want to limit the footer height to roughly the same height as the header banner (60 pixels).  I have set a max-height of 60 pixels for the footer but still the height will exceed 60 pixels on high resolutions.


I would instead like the outerWrapperBackground div (which is the tan color) to eat up extra space on higher resolutions.  I am a little unsure what I should do.  Should I try to make my div heights all percentages?  Is that a bad idea?  Can I successfully mix percentage div heights with pixel div heights?


Let me know if I am going off in the wrong direction.

    body {

    background-color: rgb(255,255,255);

    background-color:rgb(223, 217, 189);



    In addition, you'll need to add background-color: white to your header & footer CSS.
