CSS Div stretching issue (min-height)?

The page in question is here:
http://stage2.daileydev.com/

The main CSS mile is at:
http://stage2.daileydev.com/css/all.css

The "container" div contains a 1 pixel background which creates the grey divider line between the side navigation and the content section.

The issue is that I need that container to stretch to meet the bottom of the browser window so that it touches the outside box, even when the content is not long enough to make the div stretch.  I tried experimenting with the min-height: 100% element on various tags, but I wasn't able to get it to work.  Any help would be appreciated.

Ideas?

I was able to get this to work by adding the divider line to the background image.  Thanks for your assistance.

HI OaktownBill,

The where are you facing the issue and in which browser. i can't find any issues with the height the container is expanding and the background line is also resizing with that.

Please be little more specific

Amarjit

Hi Amarjit,

I'm seeing it on IE7 and Firefox 3 on Windows.  It's not visible unless the browser window is big enough or the screen resolution is high enough it seems.

#page-box {all.css (line 65)
background:transparent url(../images/bg-body.gif) repeat-y scroll 0 0;
height:100%;
margin:0 auto;
min-height:100%;
width:872px;
}
#main {all.css (line 156)
height:inherit;
padding:32px 11px 0 12px;

Here is a sceen shot showing what I am seeing:

The divider line is part of the container DIV and it seems to end after the footer.  What I need is for the container to reach the bottom of the browser window.
