    can't get the footer to stay below columns

    I am working on a Mambo integration. I have the HTML Utopia CSS without tables book from sitepoint and I am trying to follow it so that the footer stays underneath any of the 3 columns but is it not working out. Would anyone mind taking a look? uniquelayouts.com

    I used:
    Code:
    #clear {
    clear:both;
    }
    #wrapper {
      margin: 0;
      padding: 0;
     }
    But it doesn't work... Please help.

    thanks!
    Maarten

    I would say that your major problem is over-use of absolute positioning. Absolute positioning takes elements out of the natural flow of the document. You'd be better off with relative positioning and floats.

    Here's one way to do that kind of layout.
