I am by no means a HTML/CSS expert but undertook the project of building my Dad a website for his business. Armed with two books and the internet I set about my task.
Everything was going so well unitll I realised that I could'nt fix my footer to the bottom of the page . It always seemed to leave a small gap on a page that wasn't 100% the size of the screen. When the content forced scrolling then the footer would stick.
I am using a purely CSS 3 column layout with a header section, a nav bar underneath, the main content beneath that followed by the footer. Any help/guidance/lessons would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance.

Change your browser's resolution so it is bigger and you will see that the gap grows even larger. If you want it to take up the full height of the page, you would probably ned to look into using percentages and a little JavaScrpt tweaking.
As I said I'm not great at CSS so I dont under stand what I can put in the footer other than position being abolute or relative. If I make it absolute then it sticks the bottom but it shifts over to the bottom left of the screen and I don't seem to be able to get it to line back up in the middle column.
