Not able to align div correctly


Can some guru help me to check what have I done incorrectly in this simple css layout? After I adjusted the div on top before the content div, the content and footer div is all aligned to far right which I never adjusted. I tried to move it back inside the container and align the content to left but failed. I am wondering how come the div from content to footer will move to such position.

Besides, can you give me an idea what I have done on the top positioning is correct or not. I can get the positioning of the div i want on top before the content but i am wondering why negative value is required to make it fit into the container.

Please advise and thanks.
