    hello , i have a problem in my css file regarding my sidebar .

    i wanted 2 make it 100 % , but its only working in IE , in FF its not .. after searching the forum i found that i have to add this line :

    padding: 20px 20px 100% 20px ;

    its working for the 100% prob issue but now i have another prob its that i see a big white space .. you can see what i mean Here : Galicia

    scrool down you will see what i mean ...

    also this is the code of my sidebar i'm using :

    #sidebar {
    position: relative;
    float: left;
    width: 158px;
    background-color: #A5B2CE;
    height: 50% ;
    left: 0px;
    padding: 20px 20px 100% 20px ;
    text-align: left;
    font-family: Arial;
    color: #000;
    font-size: 7.5pt;
    line-height: 11pt;
    text-transform: uppercase;

    Any Idea ?

    padding at 100% will always leave white space on pages with short content and will come up short on pages with lots of content. Should probably look at adding a clearer div as others have suggested in similar support questions... at least I think that was the solution.

    Edit... Found this by searching on the subject...
