    Hello!
    The page is too long regardless of how little content I add. Visitors have to loads of scrolling just to get to the footer.
    Here is the stylesheet if anyone can help:

    /* general */
    body{
    margin:0px auto;
    font-size: 12px;
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, Sans-Serif;
    color:#000000;
    background: #fff url(images/1bg_bottom_repeat.jpg) repeat-x bottom;
    border:0px yellow solid;
    }

    img {
    border:0px;
    padding:5px;
    max-width: 100%; /* not working in IE6*/
    }
    a {color:#397aca;text-decoration: underline;}
    a:hover {color: #42a514;text-decoration: none;}

    h1 {font-size:30px;}
    h2 {font-size:26px;}
    h3 {font-size:21px;}
    h4 {font-size:17px;}
    h5 {font-size:14px;}
    h6 {font-size:12px;}

    p {margin: 0px 0px 12px 0px;}

    It is the padding on #sidebar { padding: 20px 0 700px 0; } CSS shortcuts parameters are specified in clockwise order (top right bottom left) so this means 700px bottom padding on the sidebar.

    OMGoodness. Worked like a charm! I changed the 700px to 0 and now it looks great. Thanks Dave
