I have a div which needs to be placed beneath another div.
but for some reason they move side by side.

<div id="wrapper">content</div>
<div id="footer">content</div>

	padding: 0px;
	margin-top: 11px;
	margin-bottom: 0px;
	margin-right: auto;
	margin-left: auto;
	width: 715px;
	voice-family: "\"}\"";
	width: 715px;
	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 11px;
	color: #666666;
	text-decoration: none;
	text-align: center;
	voice-family: "\"}\"";
	float: none;
	margin: 0px;
	height: 34px;
	border: 1px solid #FF0000;

<div id="wrapper">content</div>
<BR />
<div id="footer" style="clear:both;">content</div>

The <BR> is guaranteed to put the footer on a line below the wrapper, and the clear:both style FIXES the footer in the page relative to the other DIV and other elements.
