Please explain ideal web page width

  Pineman100 17:42 06 Apr 2006

I've just started trying to write a simple website, using Serif Web Plus 8.0. It all seems pretty straightforward - not much different from using a DTP package. Except for one thing: when I try out my first page in Internet Explorer, the page is always offset to the left of the browser window.

The page size I am using for the web page is A4 - in other words, 21cm wide x 29.7cm deep.

Can anyone please explain how to format my web page in such a way that it centres in the browser window? As you will have guessed, I am a complete novice to this, and I am as fluent in HTML as I am Mandarin Chinese (ie: not!).
