Hi

I don't see any footer there when looking with Opera or Mozilla. The right
column is placed too high in Opera, there is a vertical scrollbar in
Mozilla. I don't think you should use 'float' and 'position:absolute' on
the same element.

The text is very small; clicking at the + buttons makes it blow out way
too large, distorting the layout, in Opera and Mozilla.

The style sheet starts like this:

@media screen, tv, handheld, projection
a:link {

.... which doesn't make sense. The @media block should be enclosed in {},
like this:

@media screen, tv, handheld, projection {
alink {
....

}

IE doesn't show anything that looks like a footer either.
The right column is placed too high in Opera, there is a vertical scrollbar
in Mozilla. I don't think you should use 'float' and 'position:absolute' on
the same element.
Float and position: absolute can not be combined:

"[float] may be set for elements that generate boxes that are not
absolutely positioned"
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visuren.html#propdef-float

"Otherwise, 'position' has the value 'absolute' or 'fixed', 'display'
is set to 'block' and 'float' is set to 'none'."
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visuren.html#propdef-float

(In addition, float and position: relative causes problems in some
browsers (notably Opera) as discussed in a recent thread.)
The text is very small; clicking at the + buttons makes it blow out way
too large, distorting the layout, in Opera and Mozilla.
And oddly, the middle button produces larger text than the right hand
(largest + icon) button.
The style sheet starts like this:

@media screen, tv, handheld, projection
a:link {

... which doesn't make sense. The @media block should be enclosed in {},


This was pointed out to the OP a month ago:
