This is the problem:

The purple left column stops at the end of that column's content, when I want the colour to go all the way down.
I've seen lots of solutions that use a page-wide image that repeats down to the footer, and if I was starting over I'd try that, but I'm trying not to start over :(
Is there any other solution?

You don't have to start all over. All you need is to apply the faux columns trick to your your css for the container div.

Here's a tutorial for a three column layout, but works of course also for a two column layout.

The how and the why are complicated to explain, so lets try a simple model.

We "know" A and that leads to B and that leads to C.

A --> B --> C

We know why A works due to B I would say. We know how C works because of B.

creepy music ... or is it the other way around...
