I have looked over the FAQ entry on how to make sure the footer never displays higher up than at the bottom of the window, regardless of the amount of content, but so far I have been unable to figure out how I could combine this technique with my layout:
http://www.westeros.org/BoD/ (see http://www.westeros.org/BoD/Logs/ for an example of a page with the footer problem)
As this is a fixed layout with framing elements on both sides as well as the top and bottom, setting the HTML element to 100% height doesn't seem to work. And, of course, I don't really want the footer at the very bottom of the page when there is too little content to fill a full page, I want it right above the fixed, graphical footer. Finally, using the negative margin to lift it up enough wouldn't work with a footer that changes in size, would it?
So ... is it possible to accomplish the same effect with some other method that would work with this kind of layout?
