Hello. I have recently been thrown into building a site for a friend, and I have very little experience with web design at all. I've built a site that he finds acceptable (visually), but it has loads of problems right now which I have yet to solve.
If you are bored, I would really appreciate any help I could get.
Some problems I am having:
1. I've used SSI to bring my navigation bar onto the page from a seperate file, but the navigation bar is of the drop-down menu variety. On some browsers (on Safari) the process works fine, but on others (IE) the drop down menus don't pull up.
2. Just to show you what a newb I am, I have been unable to figure out how to position the content of the page in the center of the screen, and was sad to find that there is no "float=center" which I assumed would have worked if it did in fact exist. Also, I would like the stars below the navigation bar to line up flush with the bottom of the last navigation bar entry. Neither of these are of as much concern to me, but, again, any help would be appreciated.
I have some other questions, but I'll leave it at that for now. I am sorry to bring such basic questions up on this board, but I really am something of a newb, and have no idea what I am doing besides stealing code on the web here and there to fit my needs.
The site is centred in FF (which you should know, as you should be using FF as your main testing browser), but you will never get IE to behave like a proper browser without a valid and complete doctype at the start of the page - I would suggest html 4.01 strict doctype.
