[CSS] Layout, Height Spanning Problem

Hey guys

I have this design, it’s just something crap I did quickly so I can get my CSS layout working, then update the images later. [URL=“http://www.luke-martin.net/kirupa/index2.html”]Here’s another version with slices made more apparent.

Basically, I’ll have my menu in the left box, and my main content in the right, and I’d like their heights to span independent of one another to whatever content is inside them. I’m having a huge problem doing this however, because of the slices and images involved., I just can’t get my head around it :s

If anyone could push me in the right direction, I’d be very grateful :slight_smile:

Thank you very much

[PS: I know I could do something with pure CSS and less images, but the real design will incorporate things CSS just can’t do :)]
