Two differernt problems.
For the first, there's a conflict in the CSS. The absolute position
coordinates specify top:50px, and bottom:0em. This doesn't allow for
varying contents. Remove one or the other. And the 0em should really
be simply a 0 with no units.
The floated column is behaving normally. To get a column to extend all
the way to the bottom, you can use a different technique, such as
absolutely positioned in a left margin of #content. ... or you could use
the Faux Columns technique.
