    Intersting overflow issue

    If you view the page http://www.bluevolume.com/cst/a-h.htm in IE, it displays perfectly, but in Firefox, the footer seems to display at the bottom of the window and not the bottom of all the text. So what ends up happening on Firefox is that the text overflows behind the footer and past the height 100% bg image.

    Any ideas?

    (btw, the footer code was taken from a post by Paul awhile back)

    I don't know if this is related but it looks like you don't close the container div?

    yeah, the way it looks you need to add 1 more </div> at the end to close the container. That should fix it, if not it could be your #clearfooter not properly placed.

    Consider using something like this for clearing

    Code:
    .clr { 
    height: 1px;
    overflow:hidden;
    clear:both;
    margin-top: -1px;
    }
    That a tip I used when I was having this type of issue and it fixed it.
