My portfolio page has a strange centering issue with IE.

Chrome, Opera, Firefox, and Safari all render the site correctly. Any help appreciated.

The normal browsers center

The normal browsers center the 1001px fixed header/footer. The abnormal substandard backasswards browser, IE, does not know how to deal with margin: 0 auto 0 auto?

Could you please see the site in IE and then in Firefox? You'll see the difference immediately.

Guru, I'm working on that, but it's all minor stuff like <p> inside an <a>... and that's rendering/working fine for now.

Currently, the centering issue is the biggest mystery.

It looked the same in both. :shrug:

If it's a 1px difference don't try to center something with an odd numbered width.
