[thelist] footer not positioning correctly in NN6.2 browser

   Believe me I know how you feel. I recently took the pain to make a
no-table, CSS based website and ran into a number of problems. Mainly how
different browsers implement the box models differently, that and their
mixed support for CSS and JavaScript are enough to drive you bonkers!
  Go to this URL: http://www.bluerobot.com/, which offers two different ways
to center a <div> with CSS. On the right hand side the menu that lists 'CSS
centering 1' and 'CSS centering 2'.


Peace be with you.

    Yes, the footer does appear off-center. I checked it out from 640x480 up
to 1280x1024 on 3 different browsers ... and I can't figure out why.
Thought I'd made it liquid and tried some things, but alas. Looks decent at
1024x768 on IE5.5 but not perfect. <sigh>. Maybe there's a fight going on
between a CSS class(es) and the html code.

Again, thanks Alexander.
