I have been playing with converting my websites to fixed width css layouts from table layouts but I am having trouble centering my container div. I have found countless tutorials on the subject but I must be over looking something simple. Very frustrating!

here is my code for my test page.
Please tell me what I am doing wrong.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<style type="text/css">
<!--
#container {
	background-color: #00FF00;
	margin: 0px;
	padding: 0px;
	position: relative;
	left: 0px;
	top: 50px;
	right: 0px;
	bottom: 0px;
	height: 1000px;
	width: 955px;
	text-align: left;
}
body {
	text-align: center;
	position: absolute;
}
-->
</style>
</head>
 
<body>
<div id="container">
Test Text </div>
</body>
</html>
