    Page positioning

    Hey all. I was just updating my boy scout troop's website and remembered that I meant to ask about this. If you go to the website(www.troop760.com) and click on roster, the tan part of the page with all of the information is on the far left of the screen. It is supposed to be centered in the middle of the page and I can't find a way to fix it. I asked the guy who created the site, but he said that it looked fine to him. Maybe it is just my browser? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Depends on what browser you are using. In Firefox it looks alright but Internet Explorer may have a problem. For a start change the doctype to a complete one like this:

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    See if that helps.

    you must replace:
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
    with what VIPStephan give in his replay in the source of the page. Unfortunately this is based on assumption that you know what and where is the source of the file and a basic knowledge of how to do this change.

    regards

    That didn't help.
