In search of a standards based fullheight 1-column layout -- the problem

I need to re-skin a transactional web site my company has built and I plan to do it with web standards and accessibility in mind. A typical page should look like this: <div id="container"> <div id="content"> <p>Page Content goes here</p> </div> <div id="header"> <h1>Header 1</h1> <ul id="tab_navigation"> <li><a href="#">link1</a></li> <li><a href="#">link2</a></li> </ul> </div> <div id="footer"> <p>Copyright © 2006 <a href="#">Footer</a> </p> </div> </div> Detailed Specifications: The content div should come first followed by the header div which contains the ul that should be rendered as tabs. The footer follows next. It should remain near the bottom of the browser page even if the page has short content while pages with longer content should place the footer near the end of the content. IE and Firefox should both render similar results. So has someone actually done this?

Which Nvidia driver to use for old video cards (TNT2)

For those of you who, like me, are stuck with using an old video card, you may want to try the following detonator drivers. I had to look real hard to find information on which versions still works with these old card. I also tested these and they worked fine. Start with the older version first and if there are no problems with the applications you need to run then there's no need to get the newer ones. 43.45 52.16 66.93 Good luck and hope it helps
