I have an absolutely positioned menu on the left-hand side that is 
overlapping the footer on the page, which is in the normal flow.  
I had considered having a transparent div (set to display:inline) 
underlying the menu that is inside the normal document flow, so that 
it could push the footer down out of the way, but the site has a CMS 
that the user can add items to the menu through... so it won't stay 
the same height, not to mention that the mention itself expands and 
collapses...  What can I do to alleviate this?  I'd prefer not to 
use client side scripting if possible.

Thanks In Advance,
