Centering IE Issue - Help Please

Discussion in 'CSS' started by TwisterMc, May 2, 2005.

    Can you believe it, another CSS IE issue. ;)
    SEMrush
    My site, TwisterMc, is centered and looks wonderful everywhere except in IE on a PC. Oddly enough though, my blog is centered in IE on a PC and they use the same layout and CSS file.

    Anyone know a fix for my site? The only think I can figure is the doc tag, but if I change the doc tag on my site it won't validate and I like it validating.

    Ideas please.

    When I add a text-align:center; to your body, it appears centered in IE & Firefox BTW, the w3 css validator gave you one warning :)
    BODY {
    	FONT: 12px "trebuchet MS", Verdana, Sans-Serif; COLOR: #000000; text-align:center;
    }
    Code (markup):

    It is better not to use text-align for this purpuse because it is inheritable and all other elements within body will be center-aligned as well. Fixing them all isn't a simple task. See the thread 7061 on how to ceneter block elements in IE.

    Which option did you look at or both? And what is centered, just the site right, not all the text too?

    Both are properly centered in IE. The right column on the contact page seems to be shifted a bit to the right compared with the other page.
