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 www.sparengines.com 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.
Thank you for checking into this for me. I was using Firefox in the beginning and never noticed the offset, but then had issues with Firefox and had to uninstall it from my computer. Why is my IE8 not showing the home page centered? I think these were some of the issues i had and decided to install Firefox to begin with.
I will try to reinstall IE8 and see if this resolves my issues.
Thanks again Ken for helping me.
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.
I used the validator to fix the issues that my webpage had, but am finding it a little difficult to fix a few of them and would appreciate some help. It seems that the errors start where images were inserted that act as a menu bar for the page. It does not seem to like any of the changes that i do to try and correct the problem. Also, there seems to be a color error that Dreamweaver does not recognize but was created in Dreamweaver line 107 (?) . Can you look at these errors and see what exactly I am missing? I soo much appreciate your help.

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>
Hi Nancy and thank you for helping me. I do not know about menu rollovers as this is how the website was initally set up. I dabbled a little in the Spry menu bar, but when i added this to the already created Frontpages, i recieved way too many errors to try to figure out, so i deleted the Spry menu bar and just kept the "MM rollovers".
Can you explain the steps for archiving woth CSS, if possable..:)
as for line 107 - i am correcting that right now. thanks!!
I'll show you two examples of menus that uses Pure CSS, no images & no scripts.
