Wow David that was the best, easiest explanation I've ever heard for
css! So basic, yet soooo valuable. I've spent the entire day revising

It looks OK in Mac browsers, except the footer. That just won't move
up. I fix that then everything else brakes.
Would you or someone else please look in Windows for me to see if
it's still a disaster.
