    margin: auto problem in IE

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

    Code:
    #supportBtns {
    	margin: auto;
    	width: 400px;
    }
    Thanks.

    You need a valid doctype at the top(to turn your document from quirks to standard) to work this in IE.
