Hello, could you please look at my code? The question is the footer is not on the right place. It is just right the header rather than the context.
CSS:
body {
margin: 0;
padding:0; 
background: #fff;
}

#headercontent
{
    background-position: left top;
    width: 100%;
    height: 70px;
    margin: 0;
    border: solid #333;
    border-width: 0 0 2px 0;
    background-color: #FF9900;
}

#leftcontent {
width: 15%;
float: left;
color: #000;
padding: 5px;
}

#rightcontent {
float: right;
width: 80%;
padding: 20px;
}


#footer
{
    border: 2px solid #008000;
}

Update your footer style declaration to this,

#footer
{
     clear: both;
     border: 2px solid #008000;
}

jtwcs nailed it. You always need to clear your floats ;) You should also add a clear after each horizontal section of your document (header, main content, sub-main content, footer, etc) to clear your floats. I usually do it that way instead of adding it to the actual CSS rule because on random projects i have seen that do odd things with positioning and even spacing in IE 7 and 8.

General clearing div:

<div style="clear:both;"></style>

I'd mark up your HTML body like this:

<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">   
<div id="headercontent">

<h1>TEST PAGE</h1>
</div>
<div style="clear:both;"></style>
<div id="rightcontent">
<asp:contentplaceholder id="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="server">
        </asp:contentplaceholder>
</div>

<div id="leftcontent">
<a href=”page1.aspx”>Page 1</a><br />
<a href=”page2.aspx”>Page 2</a><br />
<a href=”page3.aspx”>Page 3</a><br />
<a href=”page4.aspx”>Page 4</a><br />
<a href=”page5.aspx”>Page 5</a><br />
</div>
<div style="clear:both;"></style>
<div id="footer"><p>copyright 2011</p></div>
  </form>
</body>

I placed a clear after your page's h1 tag as i imagine you are using that as a header area and may have more content up there in the future.
