I have a problem with my footer in IE where the footer aligns to the bottom of the page, but cuts over the left and right divs, which extend further than the content in the following code:

#Heading {
background-image: url('image.jpg');
width: 100%;
min-width: 784px;
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
height: 130px;

body {
margin: 0px;
padding-left: 0;
padding-right: 0;
background-color: #FFFFFF;

#container {
width:expression(document.body.clientWidth < 778? "780px" : "100%" );
min-width: 778px;
border: 0;
margin: 0px 0px 10px 0px;
padding: 0px 0px 10px 0px;
background-color: #FFFFFF;

#content {
padding: 3px;
margin-top: 3px;
margin-left: 138px;
margin-right: 274px;
background-color: #FFFFFF;

#left {
float: left;
width: 135px;
\width: 135px;
w\idth: 135px;
margin: 0;
padding: 0px;
border-right: 1px solid #000000;

#right {
float: right;
width: 271px;
margin: 0;
padding: 0px;
border-left: 1px solid #000000;

#footer {
margin:6px 0px 0px 0px;
clear: both;
padding: 1px 0px 0px 0px;
background-image: url('image.jpg');
background-repeat: repeat-x;
background-color: #000000;

<div id="container">

<div id="left">
Left Content

<div id="right">
Right Content

<div id="content">
Middle content



<div id="footer">
Footer text


This works fine in firefox.

I don't know if this makes a difference but the content, left and right divs are all included in PHP so that I can update the files accordingly and have the index as a template.
