Hi everyone,

I've created a template for Joomla CMS 1.5 version as you can see ideia-atlantico.pt. And, as far as I know, it works fine in FF, Chrome, and IE7.

My problem, as I noticed just now, in IE 6 the footer bar which was supposed to be always aligned at the bottom of the page just isn't.

Please open the site with FF or IE 7 and IE 6 to illustrate my problem.

The template_css.css code is as follows:

/*general layout*/
body{
margin:0px;
padding:0px;
font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size:12px;
background-image:url(../images/main_bg6.jpg);

}

Any help please???
