Hi there,

How do i create a web page which is centred [sorry if this is rather vague]. An example of what i am trying to achieve is
www.ironmountain.com (http://www.ironmountain.com)

Is it created with tables, and I take it that this can be created in Dreamweaver?

Hope you can help.

The Iron Mountain site you want your site to look like is mainly tables and could be done with Dreamwever.

The first table starts
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" bgcolor="#ffffff" style="background-image:url('/US/images/home/header.gif');" class="header" align="center" summary="this table is the header of the document">

Notice the align="center" which makes the table centralise.

Rather than using Dreamweaver, why not create your own coding in Notepad from scratch? It's the best way to learn. You can copy the source code from the Iron Mountain page onto your computer and play around with it or substitute your own words and images.

I don't think copyright would be an issue if you only use the coding, not the words or images. Coding is like the letters of the alphabet, anyone can use standard coding just like letters.
