"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

create new style:

#article {
width:500px; /* adjust to your needs */

add clear property to #footer:
#footer {
    background-color: #FFFFFF;
    clear: both;
    color: #4E0E1B;
    font-family: Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    font-size: 12px;
    height: 75px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    text-align: center;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    width: 960px;
