Default Cannot place footer correctly

I cannot get my footer to go under the content. Can nyone see where I've gone wrong? http://www.travel-experience.net/wrappertest.htm

I have set the footer to clear "both", but it seems to clear only the left column and not the right column ...

Content is not correct, its just a test page for the moment (!)

THANKS for any help.

It's the absolute positioned divs that's causing this. Your left coloum has a float: left and no positioning, so that one you can clear, but your right column has a position absolute (inline styled) and 4 other divs inside the right column are also absolute positioned. These you can't for the life clear out.

Just make sure that your right column has also a left or right float and all the other elements (boxes, text, etc.) inside you position just wilth padding and/or margin.

Thanks for the advice. I saw I had a absolute position within the right column (don't know why!) so I deleted that.

But I cannot place other divs absolutely WITHIN this right column? How do I place a div, for example, 427 pixels to the right of the left edge of the right column, using margins?

Thanks, that worked. But without the absolute settings, adding text outside that 427 margin div, moved that div downwards. Perhaps I need to change layout to a 3 column layout?
