is there a way to dictate, using valid CSS, an area height using pxs that isn't dependant on content?

(that didn't make sense...)

i'm trying to make the header area (the orange spot that sez 'pigeon farm') exactly 75 px tall, but for some reason, i'm just not getting it. i think it's a brain fart, cuz i know it's damned obvious.

(this might be off topic, but i didn't see a 'help me with my weblog' section.

because there isn't one, and I don't want to host one.

Without viewing your source, I can't help you, but I haven't had too many problems giving absolute heights to div boxes before.

the problem is using that and staying css-valid.

Do you have a dev version with non-valid CSS that works, and if so can you drop the URL for it?

Suggestion: ALA's Coders Forum is a fantastic place to ask these questions.

well... it's still content dependant, but oh well. it's valid, and it's how i want it to look. thanks guys.

and thanks to hijinks for pointing me to the RIGHT forum regardless.
