A CSS Question

I don’t know if anybody has any ideas on this, but I thought it woorth asking.

I’m working on a new theme for my site, but am havign some trouble with the footer text.

I’ve got it to go to the bottom of the screen (finally), but it stays at the bottom of the screen as it first appears and, if the page is longer, it just hangs there.

I’m trying to get it to be at the bottom of everything on the page, as with almost all sites, but can’t figure out how to do it.

This is the CSS I’m using:

#footer {<br />
background-color: transparent;<br />
width: 1000px;<br />
color: #000;<br />
text-align: center;<br />
position: absolute;<br />
bottom: 0;<br />
