    Hi,

    I have just started using Dreamweaver MX. I would like to know how you make a web page centre in a browser.

    I have created a page for a screen running at 800 x 600 but when it gets displayed in anything higher, the page has shifted to the left hand side of the browser window. What I would like is to always have the components on the page central to the browser window regardless of what resolution the user is running.

    This is probably really easy for you guys but I am just starting out so any help would be great.

    Thanks for your help,

    Luke

    I think this should work..

    Go to the Windows menu and select Properties. Then do a Select All (apple-a) on your page and select the 'center text' button...

    First make a table that is 100% in width and height.

    Then place your content inside the table. Select a blank area inside the tabe and set the align and valign to center and middle.

    The best thing to do is to learn some html. If you don't your code will most likely be crappy nomather what you do.

    Help/Tutorials <- Go there!

    Or, you make the table 800x600 and align the table the way you want.

    Better yet, use CSS to position your content...
