Cross-Browser Divs vs Tables 100% Height - My Challenge to Web Developers

The Challenge


I challenge web developers to come up with a cross-browser solution that uses DIVs to reproduce my layout that uses a Table that uses 100% height with a middle area that stretches.

The Catch



  1. Cross-Browser: It must work and look the same in IE6, IE9 normal mode, Chrome 11, and Firefox 4.

  2. Code Amount: The Div solution should be less complex or at least no more complex than my Table solution.  (There is a link to my code at the end of this post.)

  3. Feel free to use javascript and CSS, but just remember requirement 2 above.

  4. Extra brownie points if you use an XHTML Transitional doctype.

  5. Even more brownie points if you use an XHTML Strict or HTML 5 doctype.


User Interface Requirements



  1. Top Pane: Must always be visible and never scroll out of view.

  2. Middle Pane: When resizing the browser, the middle pane height' must stretch to fill the rest of what the top and bottom don't take up.

  3. Bottom Pane: Must always be visible and never scroll out of view.


What It Should Look Like




  1. My code that uses a table works on IE6, IE9 normal mode, Chrome 11, and Firefox 4.


My Code



  1. You can look at my code here: index.html


Remember to test on IE6.


Feel free to post comments here, and even include links back to your proposed solution.

Good luck!

Gorsh, those little guys sure do look tasty and succulent. Most tender of the tender meats! But seriously, I could never do what they ask, I'd think that after two years with a dog, I'd move to Canada rather than give them up. wow gold

Here you go:. http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts/sweets/5592/2. . All you have to do is change the serving size to 1 tsp, and multiply every number by 6 to get them in terms of 2 tbsp (since 2 tbsp = 6 tsps). Hope this helped!

You guys are unsuitable, and need to not be so very difficult around the author. This internet site seems to be dedicated to stating their very own view, which most of us have. I detest when men and women try to speak unhealthy about somebody for the reason that their belief differs from others. Evaluate yourself ahead of you try to talk about another person.
