     padding: 0;
     }

    ha figured it out! i am a nitwit! i didnt give a width - so wrapper was centerd for 100% of page; and the text i had wasnt aligned in anyway.

    sorry for post !

    Yes, for IE, a valid !doctype is required to make "margin:0 auto;" work, and also a stated width is required (includes any percent width as well as static width)
    I build for: Firefox and tweak for IE

    Another trick for centering

    Once you add that width to the div definition, you can do something like this too:

    #Layer-1 {
    position: absolute;
    margin-left: -250px;
    left: 50%;
    top: +0px;
    width: 500px;
    height: 280px;
    z-index: 1;
    }

    make that negative margin-left equal to half the width and your in business.

    psd2css Online will generate that code for you from your photoshop file if you use the '_center' Layer Naming Convention.
