There's one job I just can't figure out how to do without using tables, and that's creating a vertical line that runs the full length of a section. Layout tables are so accommodating here. Using bgcolor in a table cell I can create a vertical line that stretches or compresses with the layout, no matter whether the viewer overrides my font settings or not.
I can't figure out similarly flexible and accomodating method using only CSS and no layout tables. Right now I just create the layout so it looks good with my font choices, but I know it degrades fast.
The need for a flexible vertical line comes up often enough that I'd like to find a method that avoids tables. Is there one?
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.
