Have you ever spent hours tweaking your site footer in the SharePoint master page so that it stays at the bottom of your site, only to find out that when you view it in another browser or screen resolution it jumps back up the page?  That’s frustrating to say the least! 

In order to fulfill a client requirement on their SharePoint site, I needed to figure out how to accomplish this on a tight deadline.  I found a site that provided the perfect solution to my issue.  Ryan Fait shows how simple it is to make a “sticky footer”.  It works with just a few simple CSS classes and simple HTML markup. 

The solution has been tested in IE 5 and up, Firefox, Safari and Opera.  It basically counts a negative value from the bottom of your page and sets the footer on top of it.  The solution was easy to implement, worked perfectly, and satisfied the client!  Thanks Ryan Fait
