    CSS/Image Drop Shadow & Expansion

    Hi guys,

    I need major help with this page I'm working on.
    I want to put a drop shadow around the container div, but I don't want to use CSS because as far as I know there hasn't been a CSS dropshadow that will show in IE 6, 7, 8. And I need this drop shadow to work in all browsers. So when you look at my code you will see that I attempted to create a drop shadow around the div with background images.

    I also want to make this grid as dynamic as possible, meaning, if I decide to type in 3 bullets in the 3rd row I don't want to have to resize each div, I just want it to expand as I go.
    Also, right now there are 4 rows in this grid, at some point I'd like to easily add a 4th or maybe a 5th. What is the best way to do this?

    Any help with this would be great.

    Here is my current code (see what a mess it is?). I don't know why everything isn't falling into place.

    Thanks so much.
    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    #top_shadow {
    	height: 10px;
    	width: 975px;
    	background-image: url(My%20Pictures/top_shadow.jpg);
    	background-repeat: no-repeat;
    }
    #left_shadow {
    	float: left;
    	height: 800;
    	width: 13px;
    	background-image: url(My%20Pictures/left_shadow.jpg);
    	background-repeat: repeat-y;	
    }
    #main_content {
    	float: left;
    	height: 900;
    	width: 949px;
    }
    #right_shadow {
    	float: left;
    	height: 800;
    	width: 13px;
    	background-image: url(My%20Pictures/right_shadow.jpg);
    	background-repeat: repeat-y;	
    }
    #btm_shadow {
    	float: left;
    	height: 10px;
