    Firefox footer issue

    I searched around a lot and could not find an answer to this. uptowndermatology dot com looks fine in IE, but in Firefox the footer is in the middle of the page and overlying the text on some of the bigger pages on the site. Any idea on how to fix this? Thanks.

    Hi

    If you remove the height on "div.scrollvis" it fixes the issue. Also remove overflow:visible as that is default. (Didn't look through your entire code).

    Cheers.

    Quit looking at IE as your reference for things working. Always use any other modern browser, such as Firefox, Opera or Safari for your references to how things should work.

    You declare HTML, yet are using XHTML end tags (/>). Remove the slashes. You are also using an incomplete doctype. Since you are also using older, deprecated markup, transitional is OK but you shouldn't be using older, deprecated markup. In any case, here's the doctype you should be using:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

    Validate your html for that list of errors.

    Wrong. He should not be using transitional.[code]<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">[code]

    That is what he should be using.

    Cheers.

    The only "right" is using a proper DTD, regardless of what it may be.

    Hi

    No: transitional DTD's are only supposed to be used during transitional phases in which you are converting to a more standard page. For now it would be fine, but he really should make the switch over to a strict dtd.

    Ryan is of course right. And I will add that since one can then ignore all sorts of deprecated tags and work with a smaller and better designed set of tags, it's actually quite a bit easier to code that way.

    Wrong! He is using older, deprecated markup. He should NOT be doing that but it's the only way to avoid validator errors when he validates.

    Precisely, he should work his way up to strict.

    Didn't you just object to using strict a few posts up?

    I use HTML 4 Strict myself, but it's highly dependent on the scenario, and in this situation transitional would be a more suitable suggestion. Sorry if my statements were confusing.
