How do I place a box at the bottom?

I would like to place a box at the bottom right hand corner of my page. I think this can be done with css, but I'm not sure. Take a look at my site, http://finance.jasoncrews.name. I would like it to be placed below the two right columns but as wide as both.

I don't know if that's clear, let me know if you understand me.

Hi there,

First of all the site doesnt work under Internet Explorer, the second and third column end up under instead of next to eachother.

Under firefox i did manage to get it to work but with a sidenote that the third column needs to be longer then the second one.

After the comment "close #tertCol" insert for instance this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <div style="border: 2px solid red; float: right; height: 100px; width: 464px;">
  2. Lorem ipsum
  3. </div>
  4.  
Does this work for you?

Thanks, I don't know why it wouldn't work in IE. I tested in both and wasn't getting any problems like the ones you mentioned. I did notice one of the widgets wasn't loading, and it was causing some trouble. That doesn't seem to be an issue now.

As for the code, yes it works! I will tweak it to fit the theme, but thanks!!

I fixed the ones I knew what they meant. I'm teaching myself css, and most of those lines with errors came from the original template.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Like for example
  2. #  Line 56, column 7: XML Parsing Error: Opening and ending tag mismatch: LINK line 4 and head
  3.  
  4. </head>
their is a <head> and </head>

That error seems obvious your opening tag isn't ending with your closing tag, try to indent your code and that may help.

With 68 errors, it can be rather futile trying to force it to do what you want. In addition, you will constantly be battling those errors with most everything you do in the future.
