What I am trying to do is create a page that has 2 color background.
50% #000000
50% #d7e3ea
Then trying to place a centered table over the two backgrounds that is always aligned to the bottom of the page and centered.

I am having dificulty getting it to work. FF is working somewhat IE is not centering the image. Both are not placing the table at the bollom of the page.

#background { /*left bg */ position: absolute; width: 50%; height: 100%; background: #000000;}
#content { position: relative; z-index: 1; height: 100%; /* puts content on top of background in stack order */}
