How do I make it so that the footer always goes below the long image on the right.  I thought the <br class="clearfloat" /> would fix it but it isn't.

.clearfloat {
      clear:both;
      height:0;
      font-size: 1px;
      line-height: 0px;
}

One way would be to use the minimum height for your content div.

.content
{
min-height:100px;
}

Move this
<div class="display"><img width="259" height="606" alt="Lakeshore POP Display" src="img/display_bluecross.png"></div>

into your sidebar and set the css to just this (nothing else - remove the position etc)
.display {
    float: right;
}

WordPress Tutorial 2: Terminology

An important part of learning any new piece of software is understanding the terminology it uses. Thankfully WordPress uses fairly simple names for everything that make it easy to start using the software.

The footer goes OVER the display on the right.  I would like footer to be situated LOWER than the display so that they do not touch.

While it worked I now need to move display away from right margin a tad. I can't add padding or margin on  the right to a right floated image.  The sidebar is floated to the right too.  If I change the container, it will mess up the site.  What do you suggest I do?  Ideally, I would like to add 30px right margin or padding to the display.

Add padding-right: 30px; to .sidebar1{} or .display {}

I thought you should NEVER add padding OR margin to something that is floated in the same direction.  Both of these divs are floated right.....

I am not sure where I heard this (and it was years ago) but it was a very strict rule that you were to never ever break.  I did add a margin to the float and it took so I guess that was maybe an old rule.
