Hi All,

Hope you can help. When I position a table using Dreamweaver to "centre" it views fine in IE but it shows to the left in FF, any thoughts in what I am doing wrong.

how about centering it manually, you do this by going into the code view and find the first <table> tag and just above it type in <center>, then find the closing </table> tag and below it type in </center>, then go back into the design view, your table should be centered check it in IE and Firefox, it works fine for me.

Thanks for the reply Haol,

I have tried this and I still can't get it to work. I have been told that it would be better to include it in my stylesheet so I will have a bash at that. Any ideas for adding to a stylesheet?

Are you sure it doesn't work, if you can could you please send a copy of your code so that I can try it out, please. Anyway back to style sheets, open up Dreamweaver and go to File > New, then from the menu click on "CSS Style Sheets" from there you select which style sheet you want your page to have, Style Sheets will define the way your page looks. When you have selected your syle sheet it's all up to you from then on because I have no experience with CSS and barely any knowledge with HTML. But again, if you could send me a copy of your code I could try and do with that.

Sorry i could not see the code as it came up as how it would look on the internet, do you know any other way of sending it?

Centring in CSS is not as easy as it should be. In the CSS for the table set the width then add auto sizing margins thus: {width: 560px; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; }

BTW -- the width that I gave there was just a number picked out of the air, I don't mean that you have to make it that wide!

The problem that I have is that the table that I want to centre in my stylesheet is a table within the main page table and when I edit it all of the tables change. How would I just make this one table go to centre without affecting the whole page. There is probably a simple way to do this but I am a bit of a newbie when it comes to CSS.
Cheers.

Is the site live? Can you post the URL? It is often easier to see what is going on if we can see the actual code.

Could you tell me which table you want to change and I'll change the code for you then send it back.
