IE problem, floating inside an absolute

Sent by Kate Shorey - Comcast on 30 March 2006 20:08


Hi James,

Because your main content div is absolutely-positioned, the footer ignores 
it.
I would guess that either by removing the absolute on that which you wanted 
as the parent, or by possibly adding a relative position to the footer this 
would work. Give it a try, let me know.
