you may have problem that you did not see the page in center that is because you have used 98% width. Your css is ok just make some fixed width for container div and for top bottom use percentage like below:

#container
{
    width: 980px;
    margin: 25% auto;
    background-color: white;
    color: #333;
   
}

Open in new window

It does not work; I was asking how the entire #topcenter div would appear in the center; not the contents.  

All I want is one container with three sections inside and all sections centered.  I know I can move the sections by putting margin-left, but this is not a proportionate solution.

If the user makes the page smaller then these sections start to move under the other.  Which is not desirable.

Anyway I am confuse.. please help!
