Greetings,

I have a page you can see here.

If you look at it in IE you cannot se the border for the menu on the left. If you look at it in Mozilla/Netscape it shows up. This page is done in completely CSS. I needed to have the background for this to go from the top of the menu down to the blue border, it also needed to expand as needed depending on the information on the left. So to do this I put a div with a height of 100% and the z-index at 1. Then the other divs are set to 2 or higher to cover it. Any ideas?

100% height not working in IE.

No, I want the middle to expand, that's why I had the problem with the left. I needed it to expand based on the middle which as far as I can tell isn't possible. So I went with a 100% height and hide the bits I don't want to show.
