An update page I am working on  is at http://www.dciscancer.com/index2011.php

In Code View you can see:
<div id="Centered">
at the top of the body.
I close it just above  </body>

The tag is in the linked .css file a reads as follows:
Centered {
      position: relative;
      margin-left: 100px;
      margin-right: auto;
      margin-top: 0;
      margin-bottom: 0;
      width: 1024 px;
}

I use this many other websites to center the page on the browser screen.
It works at http://www.thebicyclesite.com and http://www.liccsc.org, for example.
Here it is not doing anything and I cannot figure out why.

Add to your css this code instead Centered:
#Centered {
    margin: 0 auto;
    position: relative;
    width: 900px;
}

Open in new window

So before you merely edit the margin property, take a close look at SSupreme's complete CSS code: You used "Centered" instead of "#Centered", which would apply to a (ficticious) tag <Centered>...</Centered>

I figured it was a stupid error.

I added the # to Centered...no idea why, in a long .css file I did not notice that :)

The margin: 0 auto;  has no effect.  I tested with and without.

Thanks.

If you tested it without the width, then there is no place for margins to exist, except 0 margins. Please follow the instruction next time.

I DID  use the width. What I did not use was  margin: 0 auto;
