I am totally reliant on tables myself. But I do believe it uses <HR> with a width of 1 pixel and height designation of "whatever". Is that correct?

Well, my first thought was to set border right, top, bottom to a width of 0 and then the border-left to the size and color I wanted. Didn't work. Ok, try two: set top, right, bottom border of a box to color of the background. Worked...a little. But as always, netscape has severe problems.

Yes, but it's that "whatever" that confounds me. How do I say "draw it until the div content stops"?
If that's the best answer, I'll stick with tables for this job.

Thanks for the experiment, Brett. I never thought about setting three borders to the background color. It's a good shot.
For now I guess I'll just have my eyes open for live examples. So far, everything I've checked out uses tables.

What about using CSS to have a line running vertically as a background?

Thanks knighty, that has potential. My first shot at it seems to have a few associated Netscape problems, but I'm going to play with this direction some more.

Quick question about the left border, Brett: what code did you use? NN4 can't handle the border-left, but it can handle border-left-style, etc.
Also be aware that NN4 tends to throw in extra padding just for entertainment value.
