I'm trying to make a footer, which has a fixed center with an expanding background. Something like this:

<<<expanding>>>   <<<fixed>>>  <<<expanding>>>

The header on my page is arranged the same way and it is working properly, but when I try to duplicate the same thing for my footer the sides are pushed beneath the fixed center. My page is here:

I'm trying to get the footer to look just like the header. My CSS and page is below. Thanks for any help.

The footer HTML:
  <div id="content_footer">&nbsp;</div>
  <div class="left_footer column_footer">
    <div id="leftcol_footer">&nbsp;</div>
  </div>
<div class="right_footer column_footer">
    <div id="rightcol_footer">&nbsp;</div>
</div>

The CSS:
#content_footer {
      width: 900px;
      height: 80px;
      text-align: left;
      overflow:auto;
      margin-top: 0;
      margin-right: auto;
      margin-bottom: 0;
      margin-left: auto;
      background-image: url(../images/header.png);
      padding-top: 150px;
      padding-left: 80px;
}

.column_footer {
      width: 50%;
      position: absolute;
}

.left_footer {
      left: 0;
}        
.right_footer {right: 0;}

#leftcol_footer {
      margin-right: 486px;
      height: 230px;
      background-image: url(../images/top_bg_stripe_long.png);
}

#rightcol_footer {
      margin-left: 480px;
      height: 230px;
      background-image: url(../images/top_bg_stripe_long.png);
}

hi, what about something like this?

<div style="background-color: red; height: 230px; margin: 0px 50px; text-align: center;">
    <div style="background-color: yellow; width: 900px; height: 80px; margin-top: 150px;">lorem ipsum</div>
</div>
