    I am new to webdesign and I am almost finished this project except for a few small details that I cannot figure out. Can someone figure out why I can't get the footer image to meet with the background image at the bottom? I can't get that space to go away.

    Thanks so much for your response!

    If you specify a height for your LayoutMiddle div of 460px or more, the gap disappears.
    However, this will only work if the table for the New Items will not change in size.

    TheGAME1264's Immutable Law of Floats, to be used whenever a floated element (such as your left side menu) is present:

    When you float, you must clear.

    Remember this rule. It is very, very important. Why? Because when calculating the height of a parent element, floats aren't taken into account by default.

    In this particular case, you'll want to apply the rule immediately after your LayoutContent section. So after the </section> tag, add this:
    <div style="clear:  left;"></div>
    This isn't the optimal method for clearing floats (the best way to do things like this is to assign them to classes in your CSS and have the clearing rules in there), but it will work to demonstrate the issue.

    Once you see it in action, you will understand and respect TheGAME1264's Immutable Law of Floats. *
