Seanpowell said in a previous question that if I was working with the header, I make the changes there instead of inline

I don't know exactly what I'm talking about, maybe my script will help.

Sorry to confuse... what I mean is, instead of doing this:

<div id="header" style="width: 989px; height: 111px">

Change the stylesheet code to this:

#header
{
     background-color:#cccccc;
     text-align:center;
     width: 989px;
     height:111px;
}

and leave the actual div with only the id:

<div id="header">

Does that make sense?

It makes some sense as I am new with CSS. ,It looks good in IE 6.0  but in Netscape 7.1 the header overlaps the body of the page and is justified to the left

Here's a piece of my code, is this right?


<body>


<div id="header">

     &nbsp;<img border="0" src="../Smaller-header-for-all-pagesgif.gif" width="780" height="166"></div>

<div id="leftcol">

Almost... like this:

#header
{
     background-color:#cccccc;
     text-align:center;
     height:166px;
     width: 989px;
}

#header img
{
     margin:0 auto;
     display:block;
}

And then:

<div id="header">
     <img border="0" src="../Smaller-header-for-all-pagesgif.gif" width="780" height="166">
</div>

But note that your header is now specified with an exact width (989 pxels) instead of not specifying any width and having it run the full width of the page, which may be better...

I still cannot get my header to work.
Maybe I should include the code by showing it in pieces.
For now, here's the whole code of my page.
The header does not center in the screen unless I'm in a full page.

Thank you. I'm new to CSS/divs

I missed your last comment before I submitted my comment above. I guess the header is set that way on purpose. I'd like it to be centered all of the time.

This works, is it OK to do this?
#header
{
     background-color:#cccccc;
     text-align:center;
     height:166px;
     width: 100%;
}

Absolutely - but you shouldn't need the 100%, as that is the default size.
