    Code:
    body {text-align: center;}
    #wrapper {margin: auto 0; padding: 0; text-align: left;}

    Whoops - I missed something.... you need to place the width in the wrapper.
    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    body {
    	text-align: center;
    }
    #wrapper {
    width: 600px; 	
    margin: auto 0; 
    	padding: 0; 
    	text-align: left;
    }
    </style>
    You can change that value to whatever you want.

    That still only addresses the horizontal. This addresses both: Center Page Content Horizontally and Vertically (without <table>s)
    Learn CSS. | SSI | PHP includes | X/HTML Validator | CSS validator | Dynamic Site Solutions

    Design/program for Firefox (and/or Opera), apply fixes for IE, not the other way around.

    Use the link above. But as for the previous regarding Horizontal rule. You had margin: auto 0; when it should read margin: 0 auto;
