Nope it was just a recommendation on a forum. I've take it out now and left it at <html>
The code works in IE 9 and FF but i have since tried it on IE 8 and the footer appears just behind the navigation bar now so e.g. close to the top of the page instead of the bottom... Is some code amendments needed for IE8 ?
