how should I place the footer?

P: n/a
Hi,

I'm trying to create a style sheet for print. Part of the style sheet
is shown below. The three columns are layed out fine. But the footer
is messed up with the navigation menu at the top. What should I do to
make the footer always show up at the bottom of the page? Thanks in
advance.

==
#container {
margin: auto;
width: 770px;
}

#left {
width: 145px;
position: absolute;
left: 1px;
}

#middle_twocol {
width:420px;
position: absolute;
left: 150px;
}

#right {
width: 200px;
position: absolute;
left: 570px;
}

Not use absolute positioning.
Absolute positioned elements are taken out of the normal flow, and
other elements (like the footer) don't "see" them.
