gd footers.

October 20, 2005

Here it is, almost 2006 and I’m still having to use hacks in order to get a proper footer in a tableless layout. I just don’t get this. Sure, we all hacked for IE5, but this is something that is broken in the standards. I should be able to type in :

<br /> .footer<br /> {<br /> position:absolute;<br /> bottom:0;<br /> width:100%;<br /> }<br />

And have it fill the bottom of the document without crowding any other divs. Works in Safari, Works in Firefox for the Mac. But on Windows, IE and Firefox display this incorrectly.
