centering a page

I have created a page in DW MX for a 800x600 screen. It would be nice if, when a user has a higher resolution screen, the page loaded in the center of the browser window, instead of being bumped over to the left. Is there a way to detect the user's screen resolution and/or just have the page load in the center of the browser window?

wouldn't it be better if the page scaled up or down to the users screen size? You do this with tables set to percentages...check out the following..

Yes you can check to determine a users screen size but this is no guarantee that they are using the full screen. They may have their browser windows resized to something other than full screen.


Having said that and assuming you are using a table for your layout. Just add align="center" to the table tag like in the example below. This will center your layout even if the screen resolution is higher.

<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">
<table width="720" border="1" align="center">
  <tr>
    <td width="10">&nbsp;</td>
    <td width="700">&nbsp;</td>
    <td width="10">&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td width="10">&nbsp;</td>
    <td width="700">&nbsp;</td>
    <td width="10">&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td width="10">&nbsp;</td>
    <td width="700">&nbsp;</td>
    <td width="10">&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>
