The title might be confusing but my problem isn't easy to describe quickly. Here goes, I'm trying to get some things in the middle of my page. I've seperated the content into 3 divs.Left is some link buttons, middle is an img and right is some more link buttons. I haven't actually added the buttons to the code yet and the colors in the code are just so I can see anything can someone help me sort this out. I will also repeat something similar underneath as well.

<html><head><style type="text/css">body{text-align:center;}div.container{margin-top:-15px;width: 800px;height:600px;background-color: yellow;}div.header{width: 800px;}div.main{width: 600px;height: 200px;margin-top: 0px;background-color: green;}div.linksleft{margin-left: -100px;width: 150px;height: 200px;background-color: black;position: absolute;z-index: 1;}div.linksright{margin-right: -100px;width: 150px;height: 200px;background-color: black;position: absolute:z-index: 3;}img.logo{width: 150px;height: 200px;position: absolute;z-index: 2;}</style></head><body><div class="container" align="center"><div class="header" align="center"><img src="http://tevershamhotspurs.250free.com/headers/title.jpg" /></div><div class="main"><div class="linksleft" >links</div><img class="logo" src="http://tevershamhotspurs.250free.com/pictures/pheonix4.jpg" /><div class="linksright" >links</div></div></div></body></html>

You might want to google on three column layouts using fixed sidebar sizes and a fixed or floating centre column. CSSPLAY.co.uk has a couple designs. There would be several ways to do this. Try to float the left and right columns in their own direction and centre the middle column. Have a look at that approach and let us know how it goes.

My comment will be hardly constructive, but it will outline what you just experienced: IE doesn't play by the rules. If you write a site that works for IE, chances are your code doesn't comply with W3 standards (and, more important yet, look like crap in other browsers).Firefox and Opera do play by the rules (especially Opera). It's better to design a page for Opera and adapt it to IE (just because it's one of the major browsers your target audience will be using) than the other way around. Else you'll learn how to write 'bad css' for a 'bad browser'.Now for some constructive advise. IE and Firefox handle 'float' differently. Also, if you want to center a div in Firefox, you should add 'margin-left: auto;' and 'margin-right: auto;'. The host div (or body) will have to include 'text-align: center' for IE to comply with your creative thinking.So, in short, the container can be aligned in Mozilla-like browsers by adding 'margin-left: auto;' and 'margin-right: auto;'. See what it does and go from there.Tinker around and have fun.EDIT: some samples

Thanks for all the help. I've now got it looking right in IE, FF and Opera so it should look right for everyone that looks at it. Please let me know if you spot anything wrong with it.
