Wondering if you good folk can have a look at this page for me. No matter how hard I try, everything on it seems to be sitting a little to the left. Its just the front page, the forums are different format and are fine.

I am a real dummy at this, so if ya can explain it very simply, I would really appreciate it.


many thanks again!

You've set the width of the main table to 667 pixels but its only TD is only 602 pixels. That doesn't add up. For example IE gets hiccups. I'd remove the width from both TABLE and TD. Also remove the height. Basically you should never fix the height of an element (if you aren't after some special effect). You also have a   after the logo IMG tag. That doesn't help either even if it's hardly noticeable. There, that should fix it. smile.gif

Oh, you may want to specify a background color. I use gray as the background color in my browsers so that's the color I see.

I viewed your site and noticed you did not specify a DOCTYPE. Each of the major Browser (IE, FireFox, Safari, Opera) will display the page differently without the DTD. I would reccommend
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
so that the browsers visiting your site do not go into "quirk" mode.
Also I noticed that there are several missing closing tags.

I have included a corrected file for you here...
By the way you have used the <font></font> tag a lot.
I would suggest using a CSS instead.

I hope this helps...any questions, post them again.
