    Footer - to the bottom, please.

    For a while now, I have been making layouts which either vertically auto-stretch or have specific height. Either way, the footer is pushed down, by whatever is above it.

    So what is the instruction, which places a footer div at the bottom of the page, regardless of content area height? To fill in, I plan to use y-repeating backgrounds... You know the drill... ("as per Psuedo columns").

    Then of course, I'd like to nudge the footer back up a little, to give it some respectable distance from the actual bottom of the page.

    Many thanks,

    Hello Docto_Varney,
    I've had the best luck with the "FooterStickAlt" methods at themaninblue.

    Check an example of mine:
    one
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad
