    Question Margin-right not working

    Hi Guys,

    I can't understand why margin-right doesn't work even though my syntax appears correct in code below and margin-left works with same syntax. I want both left and right margins equal.

    Also I'm trying to get rid of space under image, which I can't see where space is created in code.

    Any ideas/help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
    <style>
    
    h1,h2,h3,p,p2 {font-family: Arial;}
    h1 {font-size:150%; margin:10px; color:#003399;}
    h2 {font-size:110%; margin:10px;}
    h3 {font-size:80%; margin:10px; color:red;}
    p {font-size:80%; margin:10px;}
    
    .container {width:600px; height:auto;
    margin-top:50px;
    margin-bottom:auto;
    margin-right:50px;
    margin-left:50px;
    border:1px solid #cccccc;
    background:#ffffff; 
    }
    div.img
      {
       border:0;
       text-align:center;
       }
    div.hr {
       border: 0;
       width: 100%;
    }
    table{ 
        margin: 10px;
        border: 0px solid #cccccc;
        width: 580px;
        border-spacing:0;
        border-collapse:collapse; /* 'cellspacing' equivalent */
    }
    table td
    {
        padding: 8px 8px;
    }
    td{ 
        border: 1px solid #cccccc;
        font-size:80%;
        font-family: Arial;
        cellpadding: 10px; /* 'cellpadding' equivalent */
    }
    
    </style>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    <div class="container">
    <div class="img"><img src="klematis_small.jpg"></div>
    <div class="hr"><hr /></div>
    
    <h1>Header1</h1>
    <h2>"Header2"</h2>
    <h3>* HEADER3 *</h3>
    <h3>Header3</h3>
    <p>Paragraph:</p>
    <table>
       <tr>
          <td width ="20%">Project</td>
          <td width ="80%">Name</td>
       </tr>
       <tr>
          <td width ="20%">Date</td>
          <td width ="80%">02/04/2013</td>
       </tr>
       <tr>
          <td width ="20%">Request</td>
          <td width ="80%"><a href="http://www.w3schools.com">testurl</a></td>
       </tr></table>
    
    <p>This is a paragraph.</p>
    <p>Expand on pararapgh.</br>
    <font size="3" color="#003399">TESTING COLOR</font></p>
    <p>TESTING</p>
     </div>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    I'm not seeing the margin-right failing, it looks fine to me. You might want to put some background-color on the various divs so you can see them better. Or better yet, grab the Firebug add-on for Firefox for debugging.

    As far as the image, you've got two things going on. First your HR right below it has top & bottom margins which create some space. Then also you want to set the img tag to display:block to avoid a small margin on the bottom of it.
