I validated both css and html and all looks good, but for some reason (maybe I've been looking at this for too long) I cannot figure out why the whole container/body is so far down the page. Should I put a negative top margin on it?

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them: http://www.colorminx.com/stage/index.html

Thanks

#text

#text { width:800px; height:340px; margin-top:350px; margin-left:auto; margin-right:auto; }

that's what's pushing it down Wink

text problem

hi pineapple, I'm trying to come up with a way to separate the text that goes in the center from the other divs. Here are some trains of thought that I've been kicking around- none of which has really worked.
1. put text in a div (id text) and float left so it's independent of all other divs and can be styled/positioned appropriately
2. put text in div called white_logo and style/position p tag separately (this seems like a stupid way)
3. Take the left nav and right graphic divs out of white logo div and use white logo div for text too. Then that bumps the whte logo down too low.
4. maybe I should be using the z-index? I've never used that sucecssfully. Are there any commonly known browser issues with the z-index?

any suggestions are much appreciated ...
