text overflowing when zoomin in or resizing viewport

using the final files of the lesson, the above-stated problems occur:

  1. zooming in the .col's text overflow the div while the .col's height remains the same
  2. resizing the viewport forces again the text to overflow, reducing the height of the .col for the corresponding amount

I was expecting:

  1. the bigger text to wrap and the .col's height to expand and accommodate it.
  2. to get more vertical scrolling for the whole page

why is this happening? is there a solution?

Hey Matteo,

Can you include your code.

In the meantime:

Did you set the .col's height to 100%?

Hi Warren, you can find the files here: it's not MY code, it's the code from the lesson. in particular i'm talking about the "final" files.
