CSS Clear Issue

On the page below we have included clear:both in the CSS for the appropriate footer divs, yet the footer still doesn't clear the right column.

It looks like the divs are closed correctly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated: http://new.pecklaw.com/practiceareas/contract_review_program

Okay, I think this should work for you. I think that your #apDiv2 div should be moved after your div with a class of "Construction", and the position declaration of apDiv2 should be relative not absolute (div.css line 485). you'll want to add a float:left to this div, also the left declaration for apDiv2 should be something like -23px. You will need to play a bit with the top declaration to get it back where you want it vertically (I'd try -155px or so). All of those will be on line 485.
So it should now look like this:

#apDiv2 {
background-color:#FFFFFF;
border-left:1px solid #4090AC;
float:left;
height:550px;
left:-23px;
position:relative;
top:-155px;
width:308px;
z-index:1;
}

I think that will work for you.

The clear will not work because you have the apDiv2 positioned absolutely.  If you swap order of the Construction div with the apDiv2, you can float the apDiv2 to make the clear work.  Here is what I changed for the ConstructionMiddleContent div.

 
<div class="ConstructionMiddleContent">

<div class="Construction"><div class="Left"><h2>With a unique team of attorneys wholly dedicated to drafting and reviewing contracts, Peckar &amp; Abramson offers an unparalleled level of expertise and up-to-the-minute knowledge of contract practices and terms.</h2>

Open in new window


CSS changes to replicate what you originally had.

.Left {
    float: left;
    padding: 0 25px 41px 10px;
    width: 582px;
}

#apDiv2 {
    background-color: #FFFFFF;
    border-left: 1px solid #4090AC;
    float: left;
    margin: -155px 0 0;
    width: 308px;
}

Hope this helps.
