    Unhappy Center Site With Fixed Header

    This is driving me NUTS!

    I am far from the most competent web coder, so please bear with me. I'm trying to create a site that is centered within the browser window. I want it to have a header and footer with 100% widths with the header being fixed. I've tried a bunch of approaches, but none seem to work. Any ideas? Here's a link to my latest attempt:

    Thanks for any assistance!

    I'm not sure what you mean by the header being fixed. can you explain that a bit more clearly?

    In any case, it seems that you are using absolute positioning for just about everything - that's probably what's causing your headaches.

    The fixed header means it stays visible at the top when visitors scroll down the page. I'll check out the link you provided. Thanks.
