Footer problems in Firefox

Can someone please tell me how to fix this footer problem Im having.
The footer (which Ive coloured blue) refuses to go to the bottom of the
page in Firefox WIN but is OK in IE6 WIN. Ive tried surrounding the
whole content in a container DIV and using clear: both to no avail.

Anyone?

When I set clear: both on the footer, that worked as it should in
Firefox (i.e. the footer went below everything, including #navigation).

Search for "clearfix CSS";
It's a technique to have modern browsers act like IE's incorrect <div>
behavior.

BTW your DTD (doctype) is wrong. You have transitional and strict mixed
together.
Also a couple of validation errors.
