How can I move my 'footer' under my 'content' with CSS?

Hey all,

In IE6, my footer has moved up into the same area as my content.  How can I have my footer under the content all of the time, so that even when I have to add more to the blog...the footer will always stay about 75px below the content?

NOTE:  I blurred out the text on purpose.  The red border is where the footer is now located, obviously I want it under the content.

Thanks in advance!

Without seeing your markup, it's kind of hard to give a concrete answer.

Hmmmmm...well, is there a best-practice way to achieve my design need?  I can deal without a concrete answer, maybe some could give me some options to try out.

I'm guessing this is a custom theme? Which theme did you base it on or did you start from scratch? I highly recommend doing Zen subtheming or something similar.

Not much can be done without the code!
But, I can see that your RSS is positioned correctly at the bottom of the page. Use firebug to check its CSS properties, and use them for the footer.

@Thomas4019:  This is a Zen subtheme.
@HagayMandel:  Good idea, I will try and see what I come up with.

I'm confused. After you finish the first steps to make a Zen subtheme the footer should be in the right place. Is this Zen subtheme something someone else made a while ago?

Have you tried removing those four properties for the footer and see if it is still erroring?
