I bought got a pre-made website template that uses XML. I'm trying to move the menu options (i.e. Home, About Us, Services) over a bit or center them, but i can;t figure it out.

Here is the code

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<xml>
      
      <mainmenu>
            <title><![CDATA[ABOUT US]]></title>
            <content>elite_html_content_page.swf</content>
      </mainmenu>
      
      <mainmenu>
            <title><![CDATA[SERVICES]]></title>
            <content>elite_xml_news.swf</content>
      </mainmenu>      

      <mainmenu>
            <title><![CDATA[VIDEO TUTORIALS]]></title>
            <content>elite_powerful_dynamic_xml_video_gallery.swf</content>
      </mainmenu>

      <mainmenu>
            <title><![CDATA[WEEKLY NEWSLETTER]]></title>
            <content>elite_html_content_page.swf</content>
      </mainmenu>
      
      
      <mainmenu>
            <title><![CDATA[CONTACT]]></title>
            <content>elite_contact_form.swf</content>
      </mainmenu>
      
</xml>

Attached is an image of what i'm looking to do

The changes you want can not be done in this xml file.

View the source of the web page, you will probably find one or more <link rel="stylesheet"  elements with reference to a css file. You will also find the main menu wrapped in html tags. You must show us these things for us to be able to help you.

I would suggest you avoid templates that rely on XML files.  Those are not consistently parsed correctly by most browsers at present.  Find a template that relies on HTML and CSS only -- there are 100s of free ones -- http://www.google.com/search?num=30&q=HTML+CSS+only+website+templates

It will be some time before XML in templates is parsed correctly by all or most browsers.
