I appreciate your comments, however I think most of them are a
little unduly harsh and not directed at the problem.

These empty DIVs exist because I'm using Adobe GoLive templates
to create the web pages. These templates allow me to update the entire
site by editing the one source template. There are no empty DIVs on any
other page other than the one you referenced. They exist on the one page
you reference because it is the top page, and so it has a very slightly
different layout. Instead of creating a separate template for the one
page, I used the same one, so that it can be updated when I update
everything else. The cost of having one or two empty DIVs is far
outweighed by having a template that applies to the entire site.

I think it is not unreasonably messy. Everything is ordered, and there
for a reason. If I've made a mistake, it's not because of sloppiness,
but because I thought it was how it had to be done.

But in the example page, where the effect works, the footer *is* inside

Again, templates. The footer graphic is one GIF image which doesn't
change from page to page. The div you are referring to holds a
"breadcrumb trail" which changes page to page.

This I will do.
