I am having problems with the bottom of my page. I want the footer to stay at a fixed height without it changing in size if
, I change the content in the middle. Does that make sense? Thanks Bill

#footer {
width: 770px;
clear: right;
background-color: #8ED8F8;
font-size: 70%;
text-align: right;
margin-top: 20px;

Hi chillbill,

You'll have to set a fixed height and stop anything from overflowing:

#footer {
height: 50px;
overflow: hidden;
... rest of your code

It's not a great idea purely from a flexibility point of view, but that's how you do it.
