    A css layout challenge

    I want to redo do the layout if this site - http://www.5-i.biz using css and divs only. I can get the 3 col layout but the problem is getting the the left and right hand columns to render as far down as the text goes. One way around this would be to place a spacer image but then I'd have to adjust the height on each page and with 35+ pages it's not something I want to do.

    Can anyone advise how to tackle this?

    You could recreate your current design using just two columns, with the first column containing just the left hand menu and the second columns containing the content. The purple bar on the right could then be added by applying a wide purple margin to the right hand side of the body element.

    But then how would I get the columns to render to whatever length the text is on each page?
