    strange CSS footer


    now, i'm posting this after i've scoured the forum here and i have yet to find a posted resolution.

    The problem i'm having is pushing the footer to the bottom of the page, as opposed to the bottom of the window. The #footer is as follows:
    Code:
    #footer {
    	position: absolute;
    	bottom: 0px;
    	(border/font/background/padding properties)
    	width: 310px;
    	margin-top: 8px;
    	clear: both;
    }
    you can view the full style sheet here.

    if the page has enough information to push past the window height, teh footer remains at the bottom of the window, and is placed on top of the stacking order. The strangest part is that if you scroll, the footer scrolls with the page.

    To see what i'm talking about, go to the page and try resizing the window.

    There are those who manage to build a web site without knowing what they're doing; thereby proving to themselves they do, indeed, know what they're doing.
