It doesn´t go down to the bottom of the screen with IE (Don´t know about mozilla et al.) when resolution is 1280x1024. In that case the "stars" background is shown there. SOrry, don´t know how to explain better :(

Use the key F11. It will open up all views nicely. :-)

Ok, this i a screenshot at 1024x768 with Mozilla Firebird and I made a BIG red arrow to point out what my english can´t explain *g*

Please excuse the size of the image, though!

So ist was es, daß Sie suchen? Der Bereich, den der Pfeil zeigt auf,
dort ist nichts dort... dort soll nicht sein aller dort. Auf dem linke
Seite Stab ist der "Kontakt wir" das letzte verzeichnete Einzelteil.
Ich stellte meine Datenbanksuchroutine auf Ihre hohe Schirmeinstellung
ein (benötigt einem Vergrößerungsglas zum zu sehen, lol). Versuch,
das setting1152x864 verwendend. Sie können den "feinen Druck" noch
lesen und die linke Spalte ist vollständig noch in der Ansicht. Ihre
Rotpfeilpunkte zu nichts.

So, what is it that you’re looking for? The area that the arrow points to, there is nothing there ... there isn't supposed to be anything there. On the left side bar, the "contact us" is the last item listed. I set my browser to your high screen setting (needed a magnifying glass to see, lol). Try using the setting1152x864. You still can read the "fine print" and the left column is completely still in view. Your red arrow points to nothing.

Correct. That´s what I was pointing out, I guess. Maybe I shouldn´t have posted it under "problems" but under "web-design", but wait! Dang! No such section on this board!
Oh, and setting the resolution to 1152x864 is not the best idea, I´m afraid: There is such a thing as a native resolution for TFT displays. :(

Lastly you should consider that the screenshot above is taken with a normal CRT at 1024x768, so the "black hole" is even more obvious at higher screen resolutions.
Fazit:
Frankly, it is a design question. Most designers I know strive to have a clear and stringent design, avoiding unfilled or oddly shaped areas on the page. I was merely pointing out the fact that the design COULD be improved.
So, THAT was clear enough, wasn´t it?
