Errr... I specified no width.  If I put text in, it sizes to fit
vertically, since I didn't specify a width, it simply took up any space
that the margins allowed for.  I'm looking at it work currently... I'm not
crazy.  This is the css to do what you set out... unless I'm totally
misunderstanding you.

Just grab my css and place two divs in the body using my classes.  You'll
see it.

Check it out.  Tell me what it doesn't do that you need.  This css totally
resizes as I think you want.
