I posted a question in Javascript forum regarding a javascript but then it happened that I need some .css. The question is some thing I have to display some information at the bottom of the page all the time no matter what resolution the user use. SOme one posted this answer:

<style type="text/css">
#footer {
position: absolute;
bottom: 0;
width: 100%;

Here is my html code:

<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%">
<tr><td valign="top"><img src="images/ev2tour.gif" border="0"></td></tr>
<tr><td valign="top" height="4"><img src="images/sp.gif" border="0" height="4"></td></tr>
<tr><td valign="top" colspan="3">
<a CLASS="MBlack">Please </a><a CLASS="BLnk" href="javascript: window.open('tour/tour_databases.html','NewWindow','status=yes,resizable,scrollbars=1,menubar=yes,addressbar=1,width=7 00,height=500');void('');">click here</a> <a CLASS="MBlack"> for a demonstration of tour </a>

<!-- Footer -->
<table border="0" height="24" width="99%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr><td bgcolor="#3173B5" valign="top" height="2" colspan="2"><img src="images/sp.gif" border="0" height="2"></td></tr>
<tr><td bgcolor="#3173B5" align="left" valign="top" height="16" >&#160; &#160; <a CLASS="SWhite" href="home.html"target="home"><b>Home</b></a> <a CLASS="SWhite">|</a> <a CLASS="SWhite" href="mailto: my@me.com"><b>E-mail</b></a> <a CLASS="SWhite">|</a>&#160; <a CLASS="SWhite" href="javascript: window.open('privacy.html','NewWindow','status=yes,resizable,scrollbars=1,width=600,height=450');voi d('');"><b>Privacy Policy</b></a> <a CLASS="SWhite">|</a> <a CLASS="SWhite" <a CLASS="SWhite" href="sitemap.html" target="home"><b>Sitemap</b></a></td><td CLASS="Blubg" align="right" valign="top"><a CLASS="SWhite">Copyright &copy; 2004 </a></td></tr>
<tr><td bgcolor="#3173B5" height="2" colspan="2"><img src="images/sp.gif" border="0" height="2"></td></tr>

I want the Footer section to be at the bottom of the page all the time. How do I do it with positioning?

If I remember correctly that CSS does not support what you want with it being static, but will support it in the future.

You are going to have to use JavaScript with a watermark script.

Not at all, it is possible, using one hack (http://devnull.tagsoup.com/fixed/) and some CSS:
#footer { position: fixed }

Yeah, also there is a sticky thread regarding new posts in this forum entitled "Read me first" which just happends to be the very same title as that big link next to the subject field when you post a new thread.

You have violated the terms and conditions you agreed to on signing up by not conforming to the posting guidelines (http://www.codingforums.com) and as such I suggest you read them a few times over or consult them before posting a new thread to make sure this doesn't happen again...

Of course, I am refering to your thread subject... How is "Where to get more info" going to help people browsing for info to find a thread? Or people browsing to help to help you if they don't know the subject of their head and they're just going to 'post and run'?? It is likely that an bad title will have an impact on the number of people who help you and the quality of those responses.

I'm beginning to sound a bit like a broken record with this.
