    centering a page that is wider than the screen...help...

    Hey,

    Im having a bit of an issue with a website im building for a band.

    The band want a site that is 2500 width so that when the page loads you can either scroll roght or left to view the out of screen material...

    i cant find a way of the page loading centered...it is always loading to the far left and all i can do is scroll right...i have uploaded the site to http://www.testingserver.comuv.com

    the CSS looks as follows:


    #header { float: right;
    height: 275px;
    width: 800px;
    background-image: url(Images/header.png);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    }
    #vocals {
    background-image: url(Images/vocals%20BG.png);
    height: auto;
    width: 2500px;

    left: 0%;
    }
    #maincontentindex { height: auto;

    Since you don't know how wide your viewers' windows will be, that will probably require JavaScript. Ask in a JS forum.
