Horizontally centering an inline frame

Hello experts,

Does anyone know how to center an inline frame? To put it into context, I'm trying to center the Amazon aStore inline frame I have on my website. I can't extend the website border out because it's a GoDaddy template. The web page I'm trying to do this on is http://www.snowboarding-jackets.net/Store.html, and as you can see the inline frame blocks out some of the content on the right because it opens on the left. I have a scroll bar at the bottom but that isn't ideal. If there is another way to show the whole shop on the page then I'm all ears.

I eagerly await your advice.

Cheers.

div#searchbrowse {

Thanks guys, I follow what your saying mostly, but am unsure on exactly how to do what your saying. Could you please dumb it down a bit as I'm not too experienced with code. Especially when using CSS in combination with HTML as I have little, next to no experience with CSS.

Could you talk me through the process of adding this code in more detail please.

Thanks for the help :)

Oh gotcha. Works great but creates one more problem. How do I source the new code and the url for the amazon aStore? The links in the aStore are all dead when I create the new script as it's not sourced straight from Amazon. The HTML code I have for the new one is:

<img alt="" uid="d6522d45-827d-454e-804c-22f38cc0b7f2" src="http://img1.wsimg.com/wst/old/ftb/images/utility/ss_kvk9LoefFL4BS-2F3rS95PzZG3w_gn3bS2z4ywE.gif" class="script" />

Open in new window


With the amazon affiliate url inserted into the 'src' part:

http://astore.amazon.com/snowboarding-jackets-20

Open in new window


This is the original code I had:

<iframe width="100%" scrolling="auto" height="980" frameborder="0" align="middle" src="http://astore.amazon.com/snowboarding-jackets-20"></iframe>

Open in new window


Sorry but I'm quite new to all of this so I'm a bit slow with all the lingo.

Cheers
