CSS Div - 100% Vertical Span

Hello, can anyone help me come up with some sort of solution to get a div to stretch from the top of the browser to the bottom. It seems like a relatively easy concept: min-height: Xpx; But, that method (I know it is a property :P) is not supported in Internet Explorer or Safari.

I have tried to set the height: 100%; but then the background color abruptly stops after you scroll down…

Any sort of help would be GREATLY appreciated. :hugegrin:

In consensus: how do you have the same effect as min-height: 100% and have it work in all browsers?
