Sure, but that means I can't apply a background image, background color, or
border to the div, right?  I definitely feel Chris's pain.

I have yet to find solid example of someone making a div the same height as
it's container.  Someone, please, present an example that works on IE 5/6,
NS 6/7, Moz so I can rest easier.

I'm a little confused. Can you define a bit more precisely what seems to be 
the problem? (I'm not saying the problem doesn't exist,I just don't quite 
get what you're asking.)
