Have footer fill all the way to the bottom of the screen.

Hello All,


The parent element "footer" has a background color, though this element expands to the height of its child elements, it does not expand to the bottom of the screen. I've attached a screen shot of the issue.

If I apply height:100%, it does than fill the footer, but allows you to scroll when you don't have to and you get a very large footer.

In suggestions?

CSS:
/* Footer */
footer {
	background-color:#016973;
	position:absolute;
	width:100%;
}
#mid-footer-stripe {
	height:40px;
	background: linear-gradient(to top, #d29948,#ffbb5a);
	
	/*backward compatibility*/
	background:-moz-linear-gradient(bottom, #e2a247,#ffbb5a); /*firefox*/
	background:-webkit-linear-gradient(bottom, #d29948,#ffbb5a); /*chrome, safari*/
	background:-o-linear-gradient(bottom, #d29948,#ffbb5a); /*opera*/
}
#footer-menu {
	margin-top:-25px;
	padding:10px;
	float:left; /*ensure the height adjusts for the menus*/
	border:3px solid #006973;
	position:relative; /*allowing for z-index*/
	z-index:10; /*putting above copyright*/
	overflow:hidden;
	/*box shadow*/
        box-shadow:0px 0px 10px 0px #373737;
        background:url('../images/backgrounds/bg-gradient.png') #008c97 no-repeat center;
}
#footer-menu ul.nav.menu {
	float:left;
	list-style-type:none;
}
#footer-menu li {
	padding:1px 8px;
}
#footer-menu li a {
	color:#151515;
	font-size:.9em;
}
#footer-menu li .nav-header {
	color:#ffffff;
}
#copyright {
	float:left;
	background-image:url('../images/backgrounds/bg-copyright.png');
	background-repeat:no-repeat;
	width:452px;
	height:44px;
	position:relative;/*allowing for z-index*/
	z-index:1; /*putting behind footer-menu*/
	padding-top:6px;
	margin-left:265px;
}
#copyright p {
	text-align:center;
	font-size:.8em;
}

Try setting it with:

position:absolute; bottom:0px;

its always the simplest that is overlooked. Why didn't I think of that?

I guess that's why they say a second pair of eyes are good!

Thanks Coboldinosaur!
