problem with overlapping div

I have a footer in a div, and on 1 page, it's overlapping another div with clicks.
I don't have control over that div with the clicks, just the footer.

What can I add on that footer div, to allow me to click on the div under it?

you can try...
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
                      "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html><body>
<div style='background-color: yellow; width: 70%;
            height: 100px; position: relative;'>
    Outer
    <div style='background-color: green;
                position: absolute; left: 0; width: 100%; bottom: 0;'>
        <div style='background-color: magenta; width: 100px;
                    height: 30px; margin: 0 auto; text-align: center'>
            Inner
        </div>
    </div>

I don't understand how that will allow me to click on the lower div?
You can view my example here:
http://www.oorah.org/vsk2/audio/

you can see all the way on the bottom, the pagination number 1 2 3 -. can not be clicked except it you hit the tippy top of the number.

Overlap how?  Vertically or horizontally?

In CSS you could try the clear attribute.  Here's an example in context.  You don't need my color and text-align attributes.  Just showing you some context.

div.footer
{
  color			: black;
  clear			: both;
  text-align		: center;
}

I tried clear both and it didn't help. I'll put it back on the page so that you can see.

Do they have to overlap?  my point was to drive the footer to the actual bottom of the page.

First the CSS for the footer is wrong.  2nd you have multiple duplicate styles for the same elements(#footer, #footerInt, etc.).  

You have z-index's on elements that don't need it.  The main problem is that you have margin and padding which is actually overlapping the pagination.  

Your going to have a lot to change in order to get it correct.

But if you want a simple and quick fix you can do this:

.pagination_item {
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding: 4px 0;
    position: relative;
    text-align: center;
    z-index: 2147483647;
}

Yes, clear only works for horizontal.

I'm not sure.  I'd start by doing something that's not elegant.  I'd put one or two <br /> statements in front of your area.  That may not be the best solution but it might be good enough if it works.

You could also experiment with margin-top.  Say 20px just to start, to see what happens.

I also wonder why you have a div inside a div for the footer.  (But I don't think that's the problem.)
