    blank div used for background color, how do I make it stretch across the whole page?

    I'm trying to create a page where the background color changes halfway down,
    like www.brianhoff.net

    i've got everything in the body inside a wrapper that's sized at 800 width and whatever the height ends up at for the height,
    so the page will have fixed dimensions.

    I'm down where I want the background to change to black,
    where in the HTML i used this:

    	<div id="blackness"><p><br /></p>
    in the css, I did this:

    #blackness {
    	background-color: #000;
    	position: relative;
    	padding-bottom: 100;

    now this is what I'm seeing on the left side of the page,
    where I don't want any sort of gap. Instead I'd like for it to be covering the whole of that section of the page from side to side.

    here's what I'm seeing:

    the "blackness" div is not within the sized wrapper.

    what can I do?

    thanks for reading it this far

    Sorry. That's not going to work for you. Mis-read the post title. Just saw "stretch across the whole page?". :P
