I'm trying to re-work a website I made without using tables. I have a menu for which I am using this code:

float: left;
width: 20%;
border-right: 2px solid #6699CC;
background-color: #000066

However, the menu only goes down about half the page. After it ends, so does the background color (and the border) and it looks pretty bad. How can I get these to extend to the bottom of the page?

Without seeing all the code, I would guess you will have to set a height for the container, not in percent, but a fixed height. Got a link to page? Or complete code if suggestion doesn't work? After all, it's a guess with only what you gave.

Might apply some of the Clearing Floats and Box Model info.
