    CSS spacing help

    Hey, ive been having troubles finding a way to space the "content" away from the "recents" a margin-top: 25px, doesnt seem to do anything unless i bump it up to 300+ etc and then if the "recents" gets more text added it wont stick to that gap, the class=recent doesnt seem to cover the background of the left;middle;right divs and i suspect that has something to do with it, but how do i make it clear those? i have clear: both; in the recents yet it wont clear them?
    also having trouble getting my footer to slide to the bottom instead of in the middle of the bottom

    *note that the weird background colors for everything is so i can see whats where and size and so on,

    Fixed it with overflow: auto; no need for any help (also fixed a lot of other "mistakes")
