Problem with centering the display content using Colorbox

Hi,

I have no problem using Colorbox and from their samples, i reduced the code to test out the specific sample that i want (youtube video).  

But i can't work out why the changes i made can cause the content isn't displaying at the center like they have in the sample at the link shown.

I attached my modification, If someone could tell me that would be nice.

You need a Doctype on your test.php page.
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
	<link media="screen" rel="stylesheet" href="colorbox.css" />
	<style type="text/css">
		body{font:12px/1.2 Verdana, sans-serif; padding:0 10px;}
		a:link, a:visited{text-decoration:none; color:#416CE5; border-bottom:1px solid #416CE5;}
		h2{font-size:13px; margin:15px 0 0 0;}
	</style>

	<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
	<script src="jquery.colorbox.js"></script>
	<script>
		$(document).ready(function(){
			//Examples of how to assign the ColorBox event to elements
			$(".video").colorbox({iframe:true, innerWidth:425, innerHeight:344});
		});
	</script>

</head>
<body>
		<a class='video' href='http://www.youtube.com/embed/617ANIA5Rqs?rel=0&amp;wmode=transparent'>Some youtube video</a>			
</body>
</html>

@LZ1 - Thank you! That was trivial.

What's the purpose of the DOCTYPE? Do you know?

To quote from the HTML 4.01 specification, "A valid HTML document declares what version of HTML is used in the document. The document type declaration names the document type definition (DTD) in use for the document (see ISO8879)." In other words, it's a way of telling the browser which version of HTML you're using. This can be used to say that you're using HTML 3.2, 4.01, or whichever version you use; but it can also be used to describe the particular flavor of HTML you're using.
