Place div at base of content but background image to extend to base of window

I have a div called footer with a background image.

But I need this footer to be at the end of the page, after all of the content, but the background image needs to extend to the bottom of the page(repeat vertically and horizontally.

so far i have

<div id="wrapper">content</div>
<div id="footer">Footer</div>
	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 11px;
	color: #666666;
	text-decoration: none;
	padding-right: 0px;
	padding-bottom: 0px;
	padding-left: 0px;
	margin-top: 25px;
	margin-right: 0px;
	margin-bottom: 0px;
	margin-left: 0px;
	background-image: url(../images/footer_backing.gif);
	background-repeat: repeat-x;
	background-position: center top;
	overflow: visible;

Open in new window

>>repeat vertically and horizontally
repeat: both;

but I don't want the images tiled vertically.

I need a background color.
>>but I don't want the images tiled vertically
That contradicting "repeat vertically and horizontally"
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Sorry getting confused.

ive got a tiled strip image which is 100px high.
This is currently tiled horizontally across the page.
This div is directly under the last piece of content.

So I need to have a background color to fill the rest of the screen vertically right to the bottom of the page.

does this make sense.

you can specify background-color aswell as image in one statement:

background: #369 url() repeat-x center top

Yes I know.

but if there is no height specified for the div, how do I make it have the background color right to the end of the page.

Can you post a link to the page? Or can you post all the html and css

another div was affecting it.
