I tried to use the following code to center a div on a page. It works in FF, but not in IE. Any ideas?


#supportBtns {
margin: auto;
width: 400px;
}

Thanks.

You need a valid doctype (http://www.alistapart.com/stories/doctype/) at the top(to turn your document from quirks to standard) to work this in IE.
