It is extremely easy to do with 'CSS table'[1], but browser-support for
this part of CSS standards is ranging from weak to non-existent.
If 'equal height columns' matters, then a good starting-point is 'Equal
height boxes with CSS, part II'[2] with demo[3].

As mentioned: browser-support for 'CSS table' is the problem, but other
than the usual 'faux column' method and the 'hidden padding-/negative
margin-bottom' method - both referred to quite often here on css-d,
there is the 'javascript-assisted'[4] method. So one can always find a
ready-made way to achieve such a 'much wanted' layout.
