You need to describe the rest

You need to describe the rest of the layout better because I'm sure there's probably other ways of doing the layout without having the image in the HTML. Have you also thought about how long a 2000+ pixel image is going to take to download?

I'm sorry you're probably

I'm sorry you're probably going to need to provide a visual representation of what you want because I didn't really understand what you just said.

I'd bet if you need

I'd bet if you need scrollbars to show all of the image, then you won't be able to center it always. At least, not with CSS.

I've seen ways to center stuff that go offscreen in both directions, but this caused the stuff on the left to be unreachable for those with browser windows that were too small (they could only scroll further to the right).

Possibly you could fake it with the home url actually going to a link in the middle-right of the page (yourdomain.com/thepage.html#middlelink). This would start people off with the browser (if too small) scrolled a bit to the right already, with the ability to scroll back to the left and get the whole map. Browsers are pretty good at scrolling up and down with #fragment urls, but they don't all act the same when going from left to right.

Likely Javascript will work better in starting folks out in the center, while the rest of us scriptless people just see the left side of the map on first load (no biggie).

I'm no expert, but I fake one on teh Internets

If it's only the ostriches on

If it's only the ostriches on the sides, let them stay decorational. Besides the way it looks, does it matter if people cannot see the sides with smaller browser?

http://workawesome.com/
for example. Make your browser small. You cannot scroll to the left to see all the images, but that's okay, because you don't NEED to see them, they are only extra pretty.

Is your Ostrich image also only extra pretty? I thought you were talking about a map.

Also, as Tyssen mentioned, if we could see all the code or a link to the page it would help a lot.
