damnnnn,
im just a beginner so i dont have much knowall about this stuff, haha...
anyways, i am trying to do a site for my dad, and my parents have noooo clue about the coding and stuff and how to update a page or even just post updates on the homepage, sooo i just thought it might be easier for them if they could have like a little type thingy, like msn groups, where you just click edit this page and it all comes up for you perfectly and you can edit it....or even, is there a where, like this forum, you could just post updates on the homepage or something?
And also, i want to do a feedback form and have the feedback/comments sent to my dad's website email, which will be scott@scottduvall.ca.
How would i do that?
thanks for your helppp <333!

oooh and i ALSO need to know:
i have a small gap between my header and the nav bar that is really pissing me off, how do i erase that?
And my page doesnt want to center, either. I tried to margin: 0 auto and the 50% method, and it just either doesnt do it or it gets really screwy.
how do i do that, too?
thanks for your help<33

1) That's some kind of WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor. They typically create junk code.

2) We would need to see the page in question to answer that.

3) Read this: Four ways to Center Elements with CSS (in IE5+/Win and other browsers) (http://www.dynamicsitesolutions.com/css/center_element/)
