Default Unwanted white space before footer

I can't figure out why I'm seeing a separation between main area and footer. I read something about using a 1px border and margin=0. Tried both but hasn't fixed issue. Any help appreciated.

It seems to be working in Firefox now but IE8 still shows a separation between main area and footer. Stumped....

Don't use tables for layout

Thanks, I'd like to but I tried using DIVs only but the nav and hierarchy bars kept sliding horizontally when the window was resized. I need them to stay in place, exactly xx pixels from the right or left of the background graphic in the container div. The positioning options still confuse the heck out of me.

When the window is resized, or the browser is zoomed?

Browser zoomed I guess. When I physically click/drag the bottom right corner or choose maximize, the container stays in the center, like I want, but the nav bar slides left because it's using "pixels from left of window." Does that make sense? I could probably explain it better if I understood it better.

That is resizing

So the usual "boiler plate" advice gets another outing

Don't use absolute positioning

Positioning of ANY kind is VERY rarely needed.

Learn the flow of a document, the box model and floats in that order, and you will soon loose the idea of "positioning"

Thanks those links are helpful. But...back to the original question. How do I remove that blank space showing up in IE8? Take a look at the test site in IE8 and Firefox to see what I mean. Thanks!

Typically, when a menu breaks due to zooming, it's because all the aspects of it can't be zoomed exactly. The easiest fix for this is to leave yourself 5-10px of extra room for the menu to expand in.

The other option is to live with it.

Also, never use AP according to your screen, change your screen resolution, and you'll see why.
