    Unhappy First website, footer issues

    Hi guys,

    I am new to the whole web development arena but am doing ok on my own so far. Currently I have an issue with my footer, which for some reason seems to have a margin/padding below it that I cannot get rid of. My code is below:

    <h1>The Security & Safeguarding of Information is Essential to your Business.</h1>
    <p>Information is at the heart of every Government Department, Small Business or Large Enterprise and is often used and reused in ways not expected or realised. Understanding how information is handled whilst ‘at rest’, ‘in use’ or ‘in transit’ is key to establishing an environment where Information Assurance risks can be identified and appropriate controls selected to provide a safe and securely managed environment for your information.</p>
    <p>Department Heads and Business Leaders are required to meet exacting requirements for Data Privacy, Compliance with Legislation and the ever growing Regulations and Standards associated with Government or Business. At the same time vendors and suppliers are producing more and more technical solutions that provide answers to various problem areas and emerging threats associated with the way we use technology and Information, creating an overall landscape that can often appear confusing. This situation can lead to distraction, where much time and effort is spent in trying to understand the implications of Compliance and Identification of appropriate technology to mitigate risks. This confusion can subsequently have a detrimental impact on the actual delivery function of the department or operation of the business.</p>
    <p>Understanding Information Assurance requirements as they affect you, your department or business and developing a strategy to deal with these issues is key to successful growth and development.</p>
    <p>Information Assurance Strategies Limited works with you to identify what information you store, use or move and will develop a strategy that when implemented will allow your department or business to reduce the risks associated with the security of the information and to demonstrate compliance with relevant Legislation and Regulations.</p>

    Can you post your CSS as well? Hard to tell where the problem is without the CSS. I could only guess (first guess is the <p> tag at the bottom of the footer).

    Also, and this is totally unrelated to the problem you're having, but it looks like you accidentally split some CSS off into actual tag attributes instead of putting them into a "style" attribute:

    HTML Code:
    <a href="http://twitter.com/Jacarandaboy"><img src="/img/icons/socnet/twitter40.png" width="39px" height="39px" padding-top="5px" alt="Twitter"/></a>
    should be:

    HTML Code:
    <a href="http://twitter.com/Jacarandaboy">
        <img src="/img/icons/socnet/twitter40.png" style="width: 39px; height: 39px; padding-top: 5px;"
            alt="Twitter" />
    (There is no attribute "padding-top" in HTML, only in CSS)
