I am trying to place the footer at the bottom of the div box, the content box. Firefox, mozilla, safari do this fine. IE/WIN & Mac screw this up. I tried a few things from the search but none worked. Ideas? Thanks.

Not an answer but you do have a "Valid XHTML" statement and link in your footer.

You may want to check that (before anti catches ya. Wink) because it isn't valid.

#footer
{
	position: absolute;
	bottom: 0;
	color: #000;
	padding: 10px;
	clear: both;
	font-size: 9px;
	border-top: 1px solid #000;
	text-align: center;
}

Is there a reason you are positioning the footer absolutely? Seems unnecessary and is most likely causing your problem with IE.

Validated XHTML and now it's worse!!

Ha!! IE/Mac and Windows now are worse after validation. I tried changing positioning to relative and still no difference. Any clues? I don't wanna leave IE users out in the cold...

You can now also see it at http://www.lotus-tree.org/

Thanks.

IE Win & Mac being bad

Fixed height container + tiny font + font resizing = layout that breaks horribly.

Yeah, it's a bad idea.

Scrap it and start over. Smile

Start over?

That's not the reply i was hoping for. I've used this layout before successfully without a prob: www.manrilla.net/

my problem continues as it will not push the content down now. see here: http://www.lotus-tree.org/publications/adab_al_ikhtilaaf.html

i know it can work w/o having to start over...

Okay, the redux...

so, i've gone over the css again and i've fixed all the bugs EXCEPT for one in IE/WIN. For the some reason, the container's too small. it's not wide enough there for it seems to push the 2nd column, the nav section. down. it shouldn't do this. ideas?

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

If others can't replicate the error then try clearing your cache. Smile

It looks okay in IE5.2 on Mac.

Life's a b*tch and then you die!

That was my first trip to the page, and clearing made no difference.

That dawned on me just now as I reviewed the thread. Then there was your follow-up.
