[thelist] Help a Table Hacker do it right in CSS

Hi there....

I'm trying to get a 2-column layout right with CSS positioning. The 
tricky part is that due to rounded corners and such, I am trying to set 
minimum heights for the columns. What's the best way to do this?

Currently I have an absolute height set on the divs, which works in 
IE/WinXP. It uses the absolute pixel height as a minimum, but when the 
content grows longer, the container div expands as necessary.

However, I understand that this is not the web standard for this 
behavior. In FireFox, the height is used, no matter how long the content 
is, which means that the content breaks out of the container when it is 
too long.

Any suggestions?
For reference, the current coded version is here:
