How to: CSS trick to overcome border problem in dynamic height columns

One of my colleague today, came out with one solution of giving border to different height columns.

The problem

If you have two different div’s one after other (float left) and either of them have different height or dynamic height , it is impossible to give border left or right to the tallest one.

Look at the figure:

The Solution

Rather giving borders to these div , concentrate on container having them. That means give background image to the container. Just use below line in css:

#container{background:#fff url(/images/border.gif) 400px 30px repeat-y;}

and here is the solution:

That’s it. You can adjust background image x(400) and y(30) positions as your design requirements.

Your comments are valuable please let me know if I have to refine it more.
