I'm trying to debug a page. I know I'll have to attach a .zip file. Can I delete this question after it has been answered, or at least delete the document?

No because deleting the question deletes any points for answering it.  You should click on "Request Attention" to get a more 'official' and definitive answer.  But that's what they said last time some one asked this question.

I'll try to debug it myself. I want it to fill the screen and look professional. Maybe absolute position for desktops but then I'd have to test a lot of browsers. Well I will figure it out.

If the file contains sensitive information you shouldn't post it even to delete later. You have no control over any copies that might be made.
Perhaps you could create a similar file, close enough to help with your question, but containing made up information. Making one up can be safer than trying to sanitise an actual file in case something gets missed.

If the q is about the zip file itself then perhaps a description would be enough to get help.

Well look it's a site I'm building for my company. Would that be unprofessional to post the jumbled mess I've created so far?

Well, if it looked clean and finished, then there wouldn't be any questions, would there?  You can make it a 'private' question so Google won't pick it up.  Posting the whole page may be too much for a single question anyway.  It is better (usually) to post the parts you have specific questions about.

As an added note, you can ask to have stuff deleted BEFORE you close the question.
