I have a 'watermark' type image that i would like to form the background of my content DIV. However my content information varies in size on different pages of my site. Thus i would like to set the 'minimum height' of the div to 600px.

Having searched the web i cam upon a solution:
      height: 600px; /* for IE */
      min-height: 600px; /* for not-IE */

However, this doesnt work.... when you view in Firefox, it just sets the DIV size to FIXED @ 600px. I would be gratefull for any comments you may be able to offer. The URL is www.doingitforswing.co.uk
You can see the problem clearly if you go to the 'charity' page.
