Hi,

I have pretty basic page setup:

Header
Content (left, middle and right columns)
Footer

http://www.corebureau.com/tmp/3-columns.html

I really need to stretch bottom borders (marked in red) on left and right columns all the way to the footer so that it looks something like this:

It's been bugging me for days. Anyone willing to take a look at this?

CSS is here: http://www.corebureau.com/tmp/base.css

Thank you so much!
Tomas

Well-known problem

This is a well-known and frustrating problem, and there are various ways to resolve it. Which one works for you depends upon taste, among other things. All of the solutions I know have their upsides and their downsides.

Anyway, google "faux columns" and "one true layout" for starters. And while you're at it, you might want to look at this http://bobjweil.com/css/, which has another way of doing it that I figured out a few days ago.
