Head up liquid layout gurus! I have a very simple problem that I can’t find a solution to:
I have a container with a liquid width, fixed height, and 10px of padding.
Within this container, another DIV needs to be absolutely positioned near the bottom, and needs to be the same width that a normal DIV would be. In other words, I need this DIV to be 100% of the width of the container, minus 20px for the container’s padding.
The problem is that setting a DIV’s width to 100% does not take the parent element’s padding into account (which is correct CSS behavior of course), and since the container is liquid I cannot use a fixed value.
