Thank you Marshall.
I was able to get the menu centered by your method and changing the position: to "relative". However, I am still having problems moving the menu bar up. Incidently, I did find that the bottom border was pulling from another css page.
here is the current code ::
margin: 0 auto;
margin-bottom: 10px; /* example only */
background: transparent url('../images/menu_bg.png') repeat;
BTW, thank you for the heads up on including URLs. much obliged.
