    This website is for a simulated hockey league that I am in. People get to run their own team, trade players, sign them to contracts etc. All games are simulated by a program called FHLSim.

    The people there asked me to design a new site for them so this is what I am came up with. Since it is pretty much only visited by the people who are involved in the league, I pretty much designed it to their wants/needs.

    Anyway, I am still new at this but I think this is my best work so far, so what do you think?

    I have been asked to center the site... the site is incased in a css division, and I can't figure out how to center that, can someone help me out with that?

    Apply to #center:
    Code:
    margin: 0px auto 0px auto;
    You should add a DOCTYPE to your page; I suggest XHTML 1.0 Transitional given what you have in there. Then you can fix the errors at http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...astyhockey.com , many of which are quite important.

    thanks for the tip about centering...

    I was going to fix the validation errors but it works fine across all browsers... plus people are always saying to fix the errors but I checked some big name sites and they all have hundreds of errors... for example nhl.com:

    A lot of big-name sites suck at coding; it doesn't mean they're doing the right thing.

    CNN isn't even valid HTML 4: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...www.cnn.com%2F
    Google fails even more: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...doctype=Inline

    But don't interpret those as examples for why you shouldn't validate. There is no reason a site can't be valid and still function perfectly well.

    welll... from what i can see the majority of my errors are because i didn't include the "alt" property in the images, but i dont want the boxes to come up for all the images on the site. Also a bunch of them are for "a" end tags with no opening tag, when the opening tag is right in front of it All of these turn up in the links for the tab menu at the top). Some of them are from the code for the you tube clip, which i just copy/pasted. And then a few are for some wierd code that the server stuck in there lol.

    So you see, I would like to say my site is valid but Many of the errors are from code i did not write or stuff that if i fixed would bring down the look of the site.

    Also that centering trick u told me works in Firefox but not in IE... any suggestions about IE?
