    Default Damn You Internet Explorer!!!

    As you may have guessed, I have a problem with css and Internet Explorer. In FireFox, Opera or any half decent browser the design is fine. But IE is a different story. If you have IE Installed try and view a video, toon or game. See how the page design mucks up? In any other browser this doesnt happen. If anyone has any ideas about why this happens, Please post.

    I'm using I.E. and your vidoes are working fine on my end.
    By the way, you've got some pretty cool videos.

    Thanks, but its not the videos i have the problem with. On the home page everything is centered, on the videos page it is aligned left. Does this problem happen to you, or is it just me?

    I'm using IE7 and I don't see any difference between FF and IE. I will take some screenshots and post them for you.

    EDIT: Below are the screenshots of IE7 and FF 2.0.0.2 on PC

    oops, I didn't explain well enough, I meant the page the videos are situated.

    You should apply text-align: center; to all the elements you want centred. IE has trouble centring using margins sometimes.

    Ah, I see what you are talking about now. Yes, do what Twey suggested and that should fix the problem.

    I have done this but it doesn't work.

    I have a div tag around all the content.

    Here is the CSS for this tag:

    #page {
    width:840px;
    margin-right:auto;
    margin-left:auto;
    margin-top:0px;
    padding:0px;
    text-align:center;
    background-color:#FFFFFF;
    }

    Check your doctype, to make sure it matches your content. Sometime that can throw IE off.

    Also, try switching the order of margin-right and margin-left so that it's

    margin-left:auto;
    margin-right:auto;

    And finally, try wrapping the whole thing in another div and centering that.
