Cassi Griffin of Bella Dia chooses not to knot and has her own special technique up as a tutorial on her site as well. It’s all up to you to see which technique works best for you and your project! Link.

    Thanks for the link to Dustin’s post. I’ve been using this trick for quite a while, so it’s good to know who came up with it.

    i prefer the use of _height, it is a hack, but works perfect in ie6

    Great tip, I used this a dozen times…

    This unfortunately does not work for the body tag.

  12. codeslinger says:

    @ Dieter –
    And it wouldn’t ever work for the body tag. The body tag isn’t *that* kind of tag. Try placing a wrapper div around your body content and enforcing min-height on that.

    Exactly what I needed!
