Anyone want to explain to me why my darker blue sidebar looks like crap in Firefox while it looks fine in IE? There should be a dotted black line outlining it, there should be a little padding on the left so the text isn't right up against the edge, and the darker blue color should obviously go all the way down the column and not stop at the bottom of the screen. And when it gets to the bottom of the screen, the column should stay stuck to the right, not move itself to the left. I don't understand what's going on here. Is this my computer (which would not surprise me) or do you guys see it like this too? Which browser(s) are you using? Please comment!

31/8/2005 Update 9:52am: Okay, I figured out the column-height thing... apparently in Firefox, "100%" means "do it for 100% of the screen" and not 100% of the actual content. I specified a column height - since the stuff in the right-hand column almost never changes anyway - and now it's all good, but I still can't figure out why the column stops 'sticking' to the right when it gets down below the level of the posts. It doesn't do that in IE. Back to wading through HTML...
