minimum height

I want my page to be browser height even when there is not much content. I want the footer to be at the bottom. But I want it to expand if there's lot of content.

There's got to be an easy way - but I can't make anything work. I know about min-height but it doesn't do anything in FF or IE.

hard code a height value like;

HTML - height="500px"
CSS - height:500px;

you can try percent values however in my experience they arent as cross browser reliable.

The min-height attribute should work in FireFox. I used in on a few sites and it worked fine. But not for IE.
