    centred page design using layers

    chrisleslie Level 1
      Hi I use layers to design my web pages but would like to centre them, so they always
      appear in the centre of the page by default rather than aligned to the left hand side as positioned.
      (if you vierw my site you will see how its aligned to the left but would like to centre it )

      I know if you design with tables and you centre the page design it always appears centre but
      ist his possible with layers?????please, any help much appreciated. im using dreamweaver 8......

          This is usually a very poor choice - here's why....

          Certainly.

          Change this -

          </head>

          to this -

          <style type="text/css">
          <!--
          body { text-align:center; }
          #wrapper { text-align:left; width:760px; margin:0 auto;position:relative; }
          /* 760px will display on an 800px screen maximized browser window without */
          /* horizontal scrollbars. */
          -->
          </style>
          </head>

          change this -

          <body ...>

          to this -

          <body ...>
          <div id="wrapper">

          and this -

          </body>

          to this -

          <!-- /wrapper -->
          </div>
          </body>

          and see if that helps.
