Nav & Page-Wrap alignment – IE problems

  • # January 23, 2009 at 11:33 am

    Hey guys,

    Two quick problems.

    My main navigation as well as my entire page-wrap section of my website has shifted left in IE (6 & 7). Firefox is of course working as expected. I’d like the navigation centered across the header bar, and the page-wrap to align directly underneath the page header. I’ve seen a lot of posts recently similar to this topic but I’ve not been able to figure it out. I figure it’s because I’m using a float & margins? I’m just not sure what I need to do to replace these.

    I have added the following code, now recognizing IE needs it’s own style sheet.

    Code:

    Thanks for any help. Sorry for what seems like a simple question.

    Here’s the CSS

    Code:

    }

    .clear {
    clear: both;
    }

    div#page-wrap {
    width: 800px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    }

    .centeredImage {
