Why not just use the technique from Bobby van der Sluis, it works all the time on dom enabled browsers;I don't have a Mac either, but supposedly Konqueror and Safari use similar rendering engines, so I tested in that instead.It is indeed mildly broken, but certainly acceptable. The footer will render at the very bottom of the viewport on page load without any problems, HOWEVER, if the user subsequently resizes the viewport (to increase the vertical height), the footer will remain at the bottom most point at which it last rendered. This also occurs if the window is resized upwards (e.g. vertical height is reduced) and then downwards again (e.g. vertical height is increased/returned to "normal" size).
Nothing show-stopping. Having said all that, no guarantees it's exactly the same as Safari...

IE5 Mac I can mostly live without, but Safari is a bit of a bugger. I don't have a Mac here so I can't test - I'm curious as to whether it can be made to degrade acceptably. Could someone with a Mac please check the test page? Thanks!
