Hi, can anyone tell me why my web page content is central to background image in IE but is on the left in Firefox.

Thanks

We need much more information to answer this question.

How are you placing the content? CSS, HTML <center> tags or some other technique?

In the vague terms that you have given us, the likely answer is that IE is breaking the standards and what you've asked for is the way that Firefox is laying it out is accurate.

I have a related problem. Most of my pages are based on the same layout, i.e., table=100%, td colspan=2 on left, td colspan=3 to the right. I use the "old" HTML (haven't made the hyperdrive jump into CSS yet) but everything is centered. On all but one page -- no matter what platform or browser -- the content fits the screen. But on one page the width exceeds the screensize and creates a horizontal scrollbar. No matter what I try, nothing fixes this. I've reduced graphics widths, taken away borders and cellpadding/spacing...still too wide!

I created the site on a Mac using mostly Camino, display size 1024 x 768, but I edit on a PC using MSIE 6 to insure compatibility. Any ideas out there?

jasarthur,
Using old code on a modern browser like Camino is the problem.

Both of you, as stated, we need the complete code and css.

at a guess you're using CSS, and text-align: center; to center your content section?

if so this recent thread [webmasterworld.com] might help
