Hi, the background color for my content on all of my pages is white but it does not extend to the bottom. It stays at the top and gives my page elements the same background color as the web page.

If anyone knows how to get my content div to extend and contain all of the elements within it, that would be great!!

Try this:
#content {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF;
    font-size: 18px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    position: absolute;
    width: 1000px;
}

Great, thanks that works!!

Can you tell me why my border around my body is only showing around my header? Should I do something similar to my body code?

Move your header inside "content", like this:
<div id="content">
<div id="header"></div>
<div id="sideBar">.....

Remove border from body and add it to "content".
