IE page footer appearing to the right of page

Hi,

Hope someone can help with this html problem. In IE the footer of this page is appearing to the right, can anyone tell me how to get it under the main page area?

The page url is  http://www.weddingvenues.com/venue3743.html and the footer starts with the words 'Quick Links'. It should look like this page more: http://www.weddingvenues.com/venue4482.html - many thanks for any help.

There is so many things that you should get right first place:

http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.weddingvenues.com%2Fvenue3743.html

1. Get in a proper doctype. Without that IE browsers will fall top quirks mode and cease to render to best of standards.

2. recommended to put your footer within div elements and give it a dimension, ie width. Best if you work per html standards
exclusively and only use table elements for real stylesheet data.

3. Sort our your html, make sure tags are closed properly, end tags exixting, and if you choose xhtml then to follow
xhtml syntax regulations which are only few but should be obeyed in order to get a decent result.

Hi,

You haven't mentioned any div for quick links
1. Start footer with a seprate <table> and <TD>
2. end the </table> and </TD>seprately
