How do I expand the background to 100% of the width with OOCSS?

I am currently using the OOCSS framework from http://wiki.github.com/stubbornella/oocss/

I created the following page but for some reason, the black background won't stretch all the way. Any ideas?

I added this in the template.css:

.stretch{background-color:#000;overflow:visible;}
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
