Help:Web page not centered in display.

When trying to create a simple web page in Front Page, it displays off center (to the left side of the screen).
How can I make sure it displays centered or stretches to fill the screen on higher rez monitors? I'm choosing "absolute" when formatting the position of various items on the page.
I would sure appreciate any help on this.
TIA,
Ken

I'm not exactly sure how your page is setup, but usually to center a page you use margins in CSS.

I would have to take a look at your source code, but your usually add the following CSS code to your container or wrapper element.

margin: 0 auto;

Thanks Wes,
I used regular html in Front Page. It shows ok on my 1024x768 monitor, but when viewed on a higher res display, appears shifted to the left side. I'll try converting it to a css format in Coffee Cup and then add the tag you suggested.
Thanks again for your help.
Ken

well, you can always add the css in an inline format.

So lets just say our outermost div or table is named container. You would put something like this.

<div id="container" style="margin:0 auto">

Everthing else in my webpage

</div> <--end of webpage
