Hi. I have a CSS-driven page that works in all major browsers. However, when I view it in Dreamweaver (CS4) or Contribute (CS3), the footer slides up to the top of the content and sits on top of it, preventing it from being edited.

The footer's div is relatively positioned, with an absolutely positioned div inside it. I have set the z-index for any affected divs to try to at least put the content div above the footer div, but that didn't change anything.

The footer is non-editable so it keeps the client from being able to see or edit the content below.

Here is the link. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

just a guess but would having the clear: both property in the .clearfix style rather than the .clearfix:after style fix it in Dreamweaver?

Only other thought is to use a design time style sheet to hide the footer during editing only (not sure if that works in Contribute though).

Awesome. That totally worked (in Dw and Ct). I had never even heard of this feature before (usually I just hand-code), but that's pretty sweet. Thanks a lot.
