Hi

Something is making my images be pushed over to the right, and so therefore not fully display.

They are the rotating images.  Which are 601px wide and yet don't display correctly.

Any ideas?

The attachmen is invalid (just a text file to a path on your local computer).

Nonetheless, I'll try to help with the following general suggestion.  

Wrap the image in a DIV container:
<div>
<img .../>
</div>
<br clear="all"/>

You can also add the style atttribute style="text-align: left;" and align="left" to both the div container and/or the img element.  Ex:

<div style="float: left;">   or    <div align="left">    and/or   <img ... align="left">    or ... etc.

I am not sure I understand what you are saying?

What is attachmen?

I have added a container...#slider_container This has not made any change.!! :)

Sorry, spelling error...  "attachment" (eg. your provided "url.txt" upload) is what I meant.

#slider_container is a style reference and should not be in your HTML for the element.  The elmenent would reference that style reference by id (eg. <div id="slider_container"/>

Again, it's hard to interpret since there is no source code in your upload.

Really confused now...

I have attached the CSS for the rotating images. And I have reattached the URL.txt as well.

The websites main CSS is also attached.
#slider_container {
	float: left;
	width: 601px;
	height: 227px;
}
#slider {
	float: left;
    width: 601px; /* important to be same as image width */
    height: 227px; /* important to be same as image height */
    position: relative; /* important */
	overflow: hidden; /* important */
}
#sliderContent {
    width:601px; /* important to be same as image width or wider */
    float: left;
	top: 0;
	margin-left: 0;
}
.sliderImage {
    float: left;
    position: relative;
	display: none;
}
.sliderImage div {
    position: absolute;
    padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
    width:601px;
    display: none;
    background-color: #000;
    color: #fff;
}
.sliderImage span, .sliderImage a, .sliderImage a:visited{color:#fff; text-decoration:none}
.clear {
	clear: both;
}



.sliderImage .bottom span{padding:0px 0px; display:block; }
.sliderImage .bottom  span.title_slider{font-size:18px; line-height:20px;}
.desc_slider{ margin-top:-15px;}

Open in new window

Ok, the attachment to the URL to the actual live site is now correct and I see the page.  However, the banner (with the cyling photos is what I assume you are referring to) appears correct to me.

This may be a browser issue -- what browser and version are you using?  I'm using IE8.

I think I see the problem now.

Try replacing #slider_container with this:
#slider_container {
      float: left;
      width: 601px;
      height: 227px;
  padding: 0px;
  margin: 0px;
}

hi,
No that has made no difference :)

Although when I click on capability mode within IE8 it then displays the image over to the left as I would expect!! All very strange.

There's definately a problem with the padding for the UL element.

Add:
#slider_container UL {
  padding: 0px;
  margin: 0px;
}
