Would this be a piece of cake? (presales question)

Hi.
I'm rebuilding an existing site.
I have to make the inner content colums liquid of the same height. Expanding with the content.

I'm thinking of doing this pure CSS layout. And wonder if this layout would be any problem to fix in CSS sculptor.

Logo and navigation would be in a header and the small logo in a footer that follow the height of the content.

Also, the white background is static width and centerd in the browser. But should also expand the height.

Problems might be the frame border surrounding the content. And the dividing line between the two columns in the frame.

Look at attachement for a sketch.

Regards
olle

I'm no expert in CSS and have only started using Sculptor myself, but I think you should be able to start with one of the provided layouts and build your site without too many problemes including the borders and dividers.

One thing I'm not sure about tho is the menu in the header. You may want to use CSS menu writer and create a horizontal menu, or keep it as it looks - but still use a css menu. That way you'll be 100% CSS.

CSS Sculptor will work well for this design. You would start with the 2 column left sidebar layout and then customize a few things. You can adjust things like padding and margin to get it to look like your image.

In the header, you could use CSS Menu Writer if you need a full menu. Otherwise, you could add some div tags using Sculptor to achieve a similar effect.
