so, you want a content area on the left, and the nav on the right? and the
nav should have a background of some kind that stretches along with the left
content area? just make the desired background a repeating graphic.

say, something like: #rightdiv { background: white url(mygif.gif) repeat-y
scroll left bottom; margin: 0; padding: 0; border: solid 1px #999999;
position: relative; top: 0px; width: 85%;)

then make your #leftdiv however you want it. put it inside the #rightdiv and
you should get your stretch -- as the leftdiv expands down with content, it
will fill the rightdiv and cause the background graphic to repeat. thus they
will appear to be always the same height.

or do i misunderstand?
