Need some help with html/css layout

I am trying to center the menu and add some images in the div. For some reason it seems off. It doesn't center well.
What is the best practice for top menus? I read something about centering in css > html.

Any help is appreciated.

.topmenu a{ 
float: left;
 margin: 15px;
-webkit-transition: margin 1.5s ease-out;
 -moz-transition: margin 1.5s ease-out;
 -o-transition: margin 1.5s ease-out;

.topmenu a:hover { margin-top: 2px; color:#afa9d9} 

Open in new window

<div class="topmenu">	

	  <a href="#!/page_About"style="text-decoration:none"><strong>About</strong></a>
	<a href="#!/page_Portfolio"style="text-decoration:none"><strong>Portfolio</strong></a>	
	<a href="#!/page_Services"style="text-decoration:none"><strong>My Services</strong></a>
	<a href="#!/page_Reviews"style="text-decoration:none"><strong>Reviews</strong></a>	
	<a href="#!/page_Contact"style="text-decoration:none"><strong>Contact</strong></a>

Generally you would give your menu a width and then use margin:0 auto; to center it. I see you have position:static set right now, which would not work with the margin: 0 auto;. Are you trying to keep it on top of the other elements?

There won't be anything under it but yes it would need to be the top layer. I was thinking about trying to use z index and make it a top layer. Just not sure what would work and what is best for browser comparability.

I applied the changes you suggested but was unable to fix the issue.

It looks centered but it is off to the left. Not sure why..
Give the div that has the inline style of margin-left:30% the following CSS:

    margin: 0 auto;
    width: 481px;
