    OK I thought my site worked well across browsers, until I received my new(lol) clamshell ibook. The ibooks highest resolution is 800x600, my imac is running 1440x900. The problem I noticed, is that when I opened my site on my 800x600, the menu and content box are off-centered in the layout. I also noticed that when I resized the window on my imac it's also off-centered, which has given me a heart-attack because I've had this site up for months now, and probably 95% of my visitors have seen it this way. it's nothing too major, but it's a big eye sore for me. Does anyone know how to correct this problem? Thanks!

    Are you talking about www.lostspots.com ?

    It's not off-center when I tried to resize it.
    There is the illusion of off-center because of the vertical scroll bar.

    Let us know which URL you are referring to.

    Yes, sorry I forgot to add the link. it is lostspots.com It resizes in my window when I make the window smaller. Also, on computers with 800x600 res it also shows way off-center. I don't even know what it looks like on a 1024 res...but the content box should be in the middle of the green bkg

    It all looks centered to me. The text in the content area touches the outer
    left and right borders of the box ... maybe a bit of padding there might be nice.

    I have a 1024 screen, and when I reduce the size, it stays centered. IE6.0 and FF

    its not the text inside the box I'm worried about, its the actual content box that doesn't stay centered on the green bkg....., when I resize my 1440 res, the content box shifts to the very left side of the green bkg, while leaving space on the right side. on an 800 res, it stays at the very left hand side, on just my normal screen size, there are equal spaces of green one each side. do you have a screenshot of yours in ie? maybe it only affects the 800 res

    See..its not equal. The content box is shoved too far to the left, there is more green bkg on the right side than the left. It's equally centered on my screen, but only at my resolution

    Have you done the layout in a fluid way
    i.e.

    putting margin:auto on your container and putting text-align:center on your body (for IE). ???

    If not, then perhaps try that and see what happens.

    ohhhh ... I see now .... doh!

    Try this:

    #wrapper {
    margin: 0 auto;
    margin-top: 90px;
    width: 575px;
    text-align:center;
    }

    Oops sorry I didn't see your post, for some reason godaddy has been bouncing back some of my emails recently....I don't think you understand me, I don't want my text to be centered. Here let me pull a screen shot off my computer to illustrate what I'm talking about. As you can see, on my 1440 resolution the box is center (see the circles?) and in 800 its pushed to the left side. Sorry about the mix up, its hard to explain.
