Just getting started with CSS, and this site has been a HUGE help, but I’m running into an issue that I haven’t figured out how to correct yet.
On pages that have enough text in the content area, my footer stays down low, moving with the length of the text, just like it is supposed to do. The problem comes when there is a page with very little text. The floating footer stays with the text area, and is either on top of or behind my sidebars.
I have one idea (set up another stylesheet for pages with little text, and increase the margin-top on the footer), but I’m sure there has to be a better way, and I’m willing to bet one of you know how!
In good browsers "min-height: 500px;" would be enough, but as you probably allready know, ie6 isn’t that good browser and often you need to fix things for it. And because of there are still many people using ie6, better don’t ignore ie6 ;)
