I am working with the sticky footer method from http://www.cssstickyfooter.com/ but I can not get it to work with internet explorer. the Footer just stays in the same spot on the screen regardless of browser window size. It works fine with FF and Safari. Anyone have any suggestions? perhaps a better sticky footer? The working problem is at www.tonybobrov.com/feldmanlaw

p.s. I am aware of other issues with the layout but this one is bugging me the most at the moment.

The method described in [this blog post][1] works really well. You place the footer outside your content container, and then apply some pretty basic styling. One drawback is that you have to know the height of the footer element beforehand, or find it using javascript. Best of all, it works in all browsers

I've tested your site in both IE6 & IE7. Looks great in both! The sticky footer you're using is the best in my opinion.

Try: http://www.themaninblue.com/experiment/footerStickAlt/

I've used it a couple of times. Works great. Like what you've done with the Feldman site.

thanks for the feedback everyone, but I had to resort to using the following tag to "hack" it because something with the way IE8 works screws with the positioning.

I've tried using several people's stickyfooters. It's funny, lots of CSS demos are uploaded and they don't even work! For now, I've given up. Any site with a page's worth of content will put the footer at the bottom anyway.
