I suppose I could do that, but I'm not looking to fix the footer at the
bottom of the viewport - I want to fix it at the bottom of its
containing DIV (div.body, which I suppose should technically be changed
to div#body), which has a min-height of 95%. In other words, for short
pages, I want the footer at the bottom of the screen, and for long
pages, I want it below the content, not visible from the top of the
page. If what I want isn't possible (though I'm sure it should be),
I'll look at implementing one of these fixed footer tricks.
Interesting. This one doesn't work at all in IE6 (at least not in
IE6-Standalone), despite supposedly being a way to make fixed
positioning work in IE6. The other one does work in IE6, though.
