    OK . . . OK . . . I'll try it!

    I've decided to incorporate a Splash Page into my site, which (now that I've been around the block & looked at various techniques to accomodate page size, window size & browser res), I'm ready to try & learn fluid CSS design.

    First, I need to know which I should be accomodating, based on my content.

    Please go to my site: http://www.moonjams.com. At the base of the home page is a link to my Test Page, which is the Splash Page in progress.

    The dynamic background (stars) resizes to window size, so that's no problem. For the graphic content [title, slogan (marquee), animated .gif (space ship) & "Enter" link], which are all centered, I suppose I should simply resize them so as to fit a screen res of 800 x 600; & then design the page so that they are always centered?

    That would work; & make the most sense, right?

    So, my basic question is: How is that accomplished?

    (not asking to have the work done for me . . . just point me in the right direction.)

    Thanks very much,

    Wow I have a similar question, I finallly just did the site for 800x600 (css), but it is not centered yet. I tried to center everything in a <div> and it threw all positioning off. Like the site by the way

    Easiest answer for the both of you: put your site in a table, and center the table. If your site is going to be long, consider stacked tables: put your banner in a table, your nav in a table below the banner, and your content in a third table. The key there is to make sure all tables are the same width.

    splufdaddy,

    Tables are inline content! I can't have graphic content in a table on top of a dynamic background . . . the action moves right through the graphics (in this case, the traveling stars travel right through the space ship.)

    It has to be done with Layers.
