I'm having a problem with getting my footer to align to the very bottom of my page. I've already tried padding:0 and margin: 0 and it doesn't work. The problem is directly related to the image in the footer because if I remove it the divs go all the way to the bottom of the page like they are supposed to.
<div align="center" style="clear: both; vertical-align: bottom;">
<div style="width: 98%;">
<br />
<br />
<br />
<div id="Footer" style="position: relative; padding: 10px; height: 30px;">
<div style="float: left; text-align: left;">

</div>
<div style="float: right;  text-align: right; padding-right: 70px;">

i did not get your idea yet
but replace your footer div with this
<div id="Footer" style="position: relative; padding: 10px; height: 30px;margin-bottom: 0;padding-bottom:0;">

The footer dive needs to be in its own area outside of your content divs.   Ive recoded it for you as the code was a bit sloppy, now it should be a bit more readable and you should understand it pretty easy.

I dont know where your trying to put your image, but it seems your issue was wanting to have the footer be at the bottom.  Now it is.  If you need help with the image placement, I can help further if you can describe what your trying to do with it :)

Cheers,

I actually fixed this out myself... I just needed to make the image be absolute positioned rather than relative and it eliminated the space that was showing up below it.
