I need help centering a picture on my page. I have tried to do it but it stays on the left side. I want to put one picture alone, centered, then the groups of pictures, then another picture alone, centered. My web page that I am working on is

You have a two column table. you can put in a row that spans the two columns by using <colspan>

http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/tables.html

CODE

<table>
    <tr>
        <td>
            test
        </td>
        <td>
            test
        </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td colspan="2">
            test
        </td>
    </tr>
</table>

Great, you're on your way . . .

You might want to check your document for some structural problems. Add a DOCTYPE and charset and fix the few minor errors that the validator shows

How do you decide what document type you have? I use some java script and html and nothing I read tells me which one to put. Thanks. This is about www.kevindavenport-artist.com unsure.gif

For most pages you would use HTML Transitional 4.01

CODE
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
        "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">


See this page for a more complete description of the elements of a html web page.

This page gives a more complete description of the available DOCTYPES

How long are we going to keep transitioning? Isn't it time to use HTML 4.01 Strict yet?

I prefer transitional and continue to use it since i don't see any advantage to using the strict doctype.

I just took an unscientific poll of the last 10 sites I visited, they all (inlcuding the WDG) use transitional. Maybe it makes for improved accessability?

Or was that a rhetorical question?

I have put in the doc type as
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">. When I validate it the meta tags come up as errors. Does that mean I have the wrong doc type? Also it does not like my putting body link information in the body tag. How do I fix this? In addition, what would the end tag for fade images.length-1 look like? Thanks. This is still referring to the www.kevindavenport-artist.com website.

The errors for the meta and body tags are caused by the XML-style <link /> tag. Using "/>" at the end of the tag should only be done in XHTML, not in HTML. Remove the "/" for HTML.

The issue with fadeimages is caused by not escaping end tags in the SCRIPT element. See http://htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/problems.html#script for more information.

No, it means you use XHTML syntax in a HTML document. This tag...

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="ROR" href="ror.xml" />

The space+slash thing is XHTML In HTML it's like this. Kust remove the space and the slash.
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="ROR" href="ror.xml">

Fix that first and the remaining errors will be more understandable. smile.gif

I don't understand your question about fadeimages.length. That's in the JavaScript so there are no tags.
