I am trying to center a text scroller (scroller at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/crosstick.htm) on my webpage and it causes the content of the scroller to go out of frame. Does the scroller have to be left justified?

Well, did you try to left justify the scroller? If you hadn't, it may work. Just try it, and tell me more.

You should be able to center a scroller by giving its outermost DIV a CSS "margin" property, for example:


#pscroller1{
width: 200px;
height: 100px;
border: 1px solid black;
padding: 5px;
background-color: lightyellow;
margin: 0 auto;
}

Note that in order for this to work properly in IE though, make sure your page contains a valid doctype at the very top, such as:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
