Browser Display Problem

I'm very new and am using a visual html editor to build my new site. The only problem I'm having is when the site is being viewed with any version of Internet Explorer. Firefox, Chrome, Safari are all fine. IE wants to center the entire page when it should be to the left. I've tried substituting the first line with

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

as per someone's suggestion in a previous thread related to IE display issues, but it didn't seem to do anything. Does anyone have any suggestions or could perhaps provide some input as to what's going on? I was able to fix the homepage by doing the above, but when I tried it on others it didn't work. Very confusing. And on top of it, it doesn't look like the changes I put in to fix the homepage even held. The code on the site looks exactly the same as it did before. I realize I should be learning the correct way, but this seemed like a quicker route for building just one site. Perhaps not.To see the problem, go to any page within this site:www.TheSnoConePatrol.comThanks in advance for all input!

Hmm... fixing problems created by graphical editors is usually complicated. It's probably easier to actually code the page from the beginning than to find the problem.I don't recommend a Transitional DTD. The one you need to use is Strict. Check the different DTDs here: http://w3schools.com/tags/tag_doctype.asp
