I'm pretty new to tableless design and I'm having an issue placing a <div> for my PAGEFOOTER. When i place it into the code it overlaps the content section of the page. It ends up placing the FOOTER at the top of the content section. Since i would l like to use this stylesheet for every page, and the pages vary in length according to amount of text on the page I need to be able to place the FOOTER below the text area and not at an absolute position. I don't know what to do.

If anyone has the time to take a look, I would greatly appreciate it. Both the text file and the css file are attached.

Thanks for your help.

Can't place FOOTER. Please help

Hi Brandon,
I can't find the pagefooter div in the index file.
Have you called the footer something else?

No. I actually took it out of the code because it wouldn't show up in the right spot. The div is the "master.css" file as "pagefooter". You can try throwing it in wherever you'd like. I'm still not having any luck.

Thanks - Brandon

Hi Brandon,
You should try and remove most of the absolute positioning.
Absolute elements are taken from the normal document flow so other elements don't know where they are.
If you make copy relative and then move the nav up into the head section you should be almost there.

Hope that helps
