careful, you're verging on trolling

but then, so was he


really, this whole business of "two columns matching each other's height" is
fundamentally flawed in concept

you're trying to achieve a visual effect using css on structures that
obviously don't extend any further than they, um, extend

in other words, unless *you* match the height of the column contents
yourself, how is it that you expect css to?

attempting to style something that isn't there is the problem

i.e. you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig

or, sticking with the pig analogies, if you wrestle with a pig, both you and
the pig get dirty, and the pig loves it
