Column heights

I have read the entries that I found that kind of deals with this, but they do not solve my issue:

I have a multi-column layout created in EM CSS Sculpture, it all works beautifully except for trying to get my outer columns to grow to 100% of the content area. I cannot use the faux technique because the left & right columns include a y-repeating image that simulates the page border.

The page is at CoKidney/ ... it is all wonderful until we add to much text. I need to make this into a template where the client can add as much text and content as needed without it breaking the design ...

Please help!

the faux column technique id really the only way to accomplish this.

But in using the faux column technique, your right and left border image will become part of the main content background image.

The faux column technique uses an image slice about 10 pixals that is of the entire width of your page, including the left and right borders, this is applied as a backround image to your main content area using the y-repeat.
