Height of the footer element
# February 20, 2013 at 9:22 am
Could you post your code somehow please so we are able to troubleshoot in our own browsers?
Unless you are using an unsupported browser (where it will `display: inline`) the fact you’re using the footer element shouldn’t make any difference as it will just be treated like any other block-level element.# February 20, 2013 at 6:01 pm

@theacefes If memory serves me correct, Chris has already created a screencast in which he covers, albeit circuitously, the position property values.
Perhaps it was this video: http://css-tricks.com/video-screencasts/42-all-about-floats-screencast/.# February 21, 2013 at 7:51 am# February 21, 2013 at 8:06 am
Yeah…but that’s just explaining how they work…not why (IMO) it’s a bad idea to use positioning for general layout.
As I have maintained…there are occasions when positioning is the only way to go….but I don’t feel it should be the default ‘go-to’.
That’s why I wondered why I see so many newcomers to HTML/CSS asking for help when they have started their first project with it.
Is it like Chapter 3 of the ‘Web Design for Dummies’ and they haven’t read any further to find out about document flow and other options?
I dunno…I just feel that (again IMO)…it starts them off with bad practices right out of the date.
