Check out the css from one of the grid systems like blueprint.css  or 960.gs they will  make your life easier although you were on the right track.      I have updated sample code below working with blueprint.css and portions of your custom css and added min hight 100% and works in chrome http://jsbin.com/alajay/4/edit
