I've been tweeking, adding, subtracting, ect., and in the process an unwanted space appeared below the #right column. It appears when there isn't much content and the #right is short. My intention is to have #left height expand as necessary, according to #right's height. It appears to do so, except in these short cases. You'll note I have a repeating background image in the #horizontalContainer. This image visually is for the #left, however I couldn't get it to repeat there for some reason so I put it in the #horizontalContainer.I thought this may be the problem but the same thing happens when I remove the background image.My siteMy CSS
