Equal height non-faux columns with background images

I’ve had a fairly painful day experimenting with the One True Layout Equal Height Column technique in conjunction with a design that requires lots of rounded corners in all the wrong places (no, design will not yield to CSS!) and put out a call for help on the WSG mailing list for the first time in a while.

That place is magic. Gunlaug Sørtun came back in under six hours with another technique I hadn’t even heard of that looks pretty good, the companion columns method. He also has a page dedicated to CSS table- styled columns, but it looks like it could involve a bit too much browser hacking (yes, IE) in order to be worthwhile.

More experimentation doubtless to come.
