[thelist] css background height

I have 2 issues with a css built page.

One: In the container called mainbody, there is a background image 
(5.gif - green with squiggly edge) that I want to cover the full 
height from top nav bar to the bottom nav bar ie. the height of the 
tallest of either the sidebar or content text. What is happening is 
that the background will only be as long as the main content text. 
I've tried numerous things without success. It seems like an easy 

My second issue: What you will notice when reducing the browser 
window width is that the header images stay at 600px and the rest of 
the page continues to reduce. It seems to function OK but doesn't 
look great. Is there any way that I can set a minimum width (600px) 
for a container that is within another container that is set to a 
percentage of page size?
