making div stretch vertically to same size as neighbor div

Can someone tell me how to make a div stretch vertically so it is
always the same height as its neighbor div, while the neighbor div
expands to fit its content (like a navigation bar on the left always
the same height as the content div)?

I don't. Instead, I enclose the two side-by-side DIVs within another DIV.

I appreciate the answers. I tried #1 from Ben and it definitely works,
but "neighbor" won't get deeper when "stretch" exceeds the depth of
"neighbor", so the content area always needs to be the same height as
or deeper than the navigation area for the heights to line up.

David, could you possibly provide a code example of what you mean?

Use <table This requirement is sufficient to justify using it.

How do you do a css 2 column layout with header and footer, with the 2nd column auto-stretching so entire page looks good for 800 x 600 resolution as min. and 1024 x 768 resolution as a max? Ideally the layout would be centered so it scales better visually. This would be great for me. Thanks,
