    Problem with aligning my header

    Hi, as you can queses I'm working on a website.
    Iv been working on a template for 2 days and I;m done with it
    Now i'm in the coding portion of my website but I ran into an unexpected problem.

    I centered aligned my headerwrapper with "margin:0 auto;"(code also below).
    The problem is that my headerwrapper is not aligned in Internet Explorer 9 but it works in Google Chrome,FireFox, and Safari.

    Im running windows 7 just to let ya guys know.


    Here is a list of web browsers i'm testing my website in:

    Internet Explorer 9
    Google Chrome
    FireFox
    Safari

    If there is any more I should test in Just tell me.

    HTML CODE:

    <html>
    <head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css">
    <title>LearnComputers.com</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id="wrapper">
    <div id="headerwrapper"></div>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    CSS CODE:

    body
    {
    margin:0px;
    height:0px;
    }
    #wrapper
    {
    width:100%;
    height:100%;
    background:e6e6e6;
    }
    #headerwrapper
    {
    width:1383px;
    background:#232323;
    height:97px;
    margin:0 auto;
    }


    THANKS

    Edit:works in live view as well in Dreamweaver.

    You need to have a DOCTYPE at the top. I'd recommend an HTML Strict one.
