    I'm having a problem with putting a background behind two divs that are next to each other...
    I have a main content div on the left and a sidebar div on the right that are enclosed in a page div. I made the background of the page div black. But when i float them both to the left, to put them next to each other, the black background extends only as far as the sidebar div extends. It would be awesome if it extended to the one that is longest automatically, but if not, then extend past the content div.
    Anyone know how to fix this?

    I attached the html and css file.

    Just give us the link to your site because something is wrong with the .css attachment.
    It's easier if we don't have to duplicate it on our PC's ... takes too long to do.

    With floats, add a clearing div below the the 2 floats. A footer works well for this if you don't already have one. Also you can try overflow: auto; for the page div.
