"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Looks like you solved it

Background #fff on id footer was the way to go but as you probably noticed that ended up with your footer extending to the right by 30px;

This is because you have a container inside a container and the extra padding / margin was pushing it out. I see you hacked it with a specified width - might be worth looking at fixing the markup so you don't have to hard code the width.

I still see the problem; the footer pushes out to the right and is indented on the left (the white background color), and the <hr> isn't included in that.  I think I still have the problem. I'll look at using something other than another container there.
