content borders

I use CSS Sculptor 1.1.5 I think... version 1 with latest updates, but not vs 2.

CSS Sculptor 1.1.5

I have ?s about creating a layout w/ borders that surround just the content area above the footer, and below the menu. I have, say, 2 columns plus header and nav area and I could add a border to the whole body of the document and it will surround the header all the way down plus the footer's outer borders (not the interior borders there).

But often times I just want to set apart the content area, e.g. if the page's bg color is white and the content area is also white I can delineate with a body border, but I don't want a border around the entire structure. But borders around content columns that don't run down to the footer don't give me a full border either.

Also one column is always shorter, and I'm looking for an easy way to establish a faux column to make each column appear to run down to the footer.

Reading the features of version 2 it appears these are things addressed:
Add new div tags anywhere – NEW
Automatically create equal length columns – NEW

Thus apparently I can't do this in version 1. Is that right? And the new dive feature provides a way to add content boxes etc. and style them, from the onset?

Also what is the step I should take to make sure the CSS gets stored in a separate file?
