Problem.s with aligning / displaying images

Hi!

1) We have two images on this page and are trying to get them to be hortizontally aligned.
Currently, they are being displayed vertically aligned.
2) Also we can not scroll down the page to see more than half of this first image.
So we would greatly appreciate any specific code corrections in correcting these two issues.
Thank you ...

Look into changing your:

position:fixed

You should be using absolute - relative if you want to be able to scroll in the same div

becraig,

we changed all instances of position:fixed to position:absolute and now we can scroll, but the two images are still vertically aligned.
how can we make then horitizontally aligned?
they are each 320 pixels wide.

change your display format from inline-block to inline for those two images

#images {

    display:inline;
    position:relative;
    top:165px;
        border:#211D20 solid 10px;
        text-align:center;
}

Try giving your images some dimensions i.e.  style="width:320px;height:320px"

As when i do that they align fine. Do you have a live link to the page? its hard to see problem.

easynow111,

that fixed the problem with getting the two images horizontally aligned.
is there a way to get the box around the two images to be centered horizontally?
currently, it is left margin aligned.
TIA
