    I'm not convinced about that article, but do read it. All you need to do to get a band accross the page at the bottom is put in and extra div after your content, give this whatevery background colour you wish and put any links or copyright notices in it. If you have been floating elements left and right then you may need to give it the attibute "clear: both" so it appears below all the floated elements.

    There are layout issues with that, specifically if the heights of all columns aren't the same/fixed.

    If you have been floating elements left and right then you may need to give it the attibute "clear: both" so it appears below all the floated elements.
    a <br /> with the style clear:both; between the floats and the footer will work better across browsers
