    Uneven cols?

    I have a two column layout. The column's are uneven in their content. The problem I'm having is how do I get the shorter column to extend to the bottom of the page. Right now the shorter column stops when it's contents stop, and the background shows?

    Thanks

    it might be a bit unprofessional, but when I do layouts such as these, I use BR tags to fill in the extra space, it works fine

    a bit

    http://alistapart.com/articles/fauxcolumns/ is the best way all-round

    there is a javascript way but depending on the layout it can be completly avoided.
    Stop making things so hard on yourself.

    Another faux column example ... maybe easier to copy/understand?
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
