Double column background

P: n/a
I'm working on a little something for my dad and have a question. I have
a background graphic which repeats-y down the left side of the page. I
want to get the exact same thing down the right side as well. See the
page and you should see what I mean. How might that work?

Thanks for your time, Aron

sweet, thanks for the quick reply. I knew it had to be something simple,
I just couldn't figure it out. About the hover, you're right. The
novelty of it wears off quick. Thanks again, Aron

After playing with it a bit more, I used position:float; on the columns
and they did exactly what I wanted in a standards compliant browser.
Then I looked at in IE and boy oh boy, was it screwed up. That made me
sad. looks like I'll have to figure out something else to make it look
the best. BTW, Bruce, I know what you said in the comments about
adjusting the columns (as best as possible) to the height of the
content, but different resolutions would whack that way out. I'll keep
working on it. Thanks, Aron

Which one? Yours, brucie, or the float version? Anyway, yours works on my
IE5 as well. One drawback, however: when I make my window narrow enough, the
right div will cover the main contents and no scrolling will help to bring
the hidden parts back into view. Any remedy?

i mentioned min-width in the source but its not supported by IE.
IE sucks. i suppose you could z-index the content div so at least it
would go over the right div.

I'll try that for my own site - so far I have made a table layout, now I'll
try to do it without tables...
