<div id="wrapper">

 

<h1>mmanouil</h1>

 

 

 

<table width="469" height="43" border="0">

<img src="thimbleletterArial.png" alt="Logo Thimble" name="img1" width="63" height="73" id="img1" />

 

</div>

</body>

/*Resizing the website in each screen resolution*/

#wrapper { width: 550px; margin:0 auto; position:relative;

 

}

 

/*Main logo*/

h1{

I add a background image and still nothing... Here is the code as it is now:

 

HTML & CSS

 

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html>

 

 

<head>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

<title>Emmanouil main</title>

<link href="emmanouil.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

 

</head>

 

<body>

 

 

<div id="wrapper">

<div id ="content">

 

<h1>mmanouil</h1>

 

 

 

<table width="469" height="43" border="0">

<tr>

<td width="80"> Home</td>

<td width="109">Products</td>

<td width="72">News</td>

<td width="105">About us</td>

<td width="81">Contact</td>

</tr>

</table>

 

 

<img src="thimbleletterArial.png" alt="Logo Thimble" name="img1" width="63" height="73" id="img1" />

</div>

</div>

</body>

</html>

 

 

@charset "UTF-8";

 

/*Sets the background image and color*/

body{ background-image:url(bgfinal2.jpg); background-repeat:no-repeat; background-color:#000;

 

 

}

 

/*Resizing the website in each screen resolution*/

#wrapper { width: 800px; margin:0 auto; position:relative;

 

}

 

/*Main logo*/

h1{

position:absolute;

top:35px;

}

 

 

 

/*TABLE*/

table {

-moz-border-radius: 1em 4em 1em 4em;

border-radius: 1em 3em 1em 3em;

color:#FFF;

position:absolute;

top:100px;

-moz-border-radius: 5em 5em 2em 2em;

border-radius: 5em 5em 2em 2em;

}

 

/*Thimble*/

#img1{position:absolute; top:28px; left:78;}

There isn't anything wrong with the centering of the website. That is working fine.

 

However, one thing to note -- the website's wrapper is 700px wide, whereas the table you are using for your navigation is only 496px wide. This makes it appear like the content isn't actually in the center of the page, but slightly to the left. If you add "border:1px solid red" to #wrapper in your CSS, you'll see what I mean. Either you need to make the table wider to fill the 700px, or you'll need to make the #wrapper less than 700px.

 

One other thing... To use a black background, you need to change "background-color:#00000;"(5 "0"s) in your CSS to "background-color:#000000;" (6 "0"s). HEX codes that are used to specify colors usually use 6 characters, not five. Also, keep in mind that your background image isn't very big -- if you intend to use a background image, you probably should use a larger image.

then change the CSS code that you are using to add the background image. You have this at the moment:

 

body{ background-image:url(bgfinal2.jpg); background-repeat:no-repeat; background-color:#000; }

 

You could shorten it to this:

 

body { background: #000000 url(bgfinal2.jpg) top center no-repeat; }

 

the "background" property combines the background-image, background-repeat, background-color and background-position properties into one shorter property. The "top center" section indicates where you want it to be placed.
