Main web page is off centered

Jan 3, 2013 9:42 AM

Hello all.

A few months back I purchased Dreamweaver  CS6 so that i could update my website that was initally created by a  professional who used Frontpage to create it. I must admit, everything went extremely well. I have recently posted a few updates to me webpages and noticed that the main page is left aligned, but the other pages on my site seem to look centered. I also noticed that all the other pages have a Div5 tag at the top of their pages, but the main page just list Div tag. I have researched this but do not know exactly what my problem is to even begin looking.

My website is and i am using IE8 as the browser.

I would appreciate any help that you can give, and any feedback on my website would be a great help- as my profession is in accounting not in web design but i really did enjoy learning something new.

    You do have quite a few errors in your html, mainly in the <head> section.


    Run your pages through the validator here:



    Correct all of the errors and if it's still happening once everything is fixed, we can take a closer look.

    The MM Rollovers never validate which is why I don't use them.  Menu rollovers can be achieved with CSS.


    Line 107 should be reduced to this:

    <span class="new_text">SPAR Racing Engines have</span>
