CSS simple question?

Using CSS I want to center a DIV on the page and always keep it 3px
from the top. Seems simple but I cannot find a cross-browser solution
to this problem. I can get to work in IE or FF but not both w/o
relaxing the 3px from the top constraint. Can someone offer a solution
to this problem?

...not multi-post. Cross-post only if absolutely necessary. You have
answers in alt.html (This is Usenet, not Google Groups.)

body {
text-align: center;
}
#container {
top: 3px;
width: 700px;
margin: 0 auto;
text-align: left;
}

This is incorrect. text-align property aligns *text* not block elements.
To center a block element within its container set a width to the block
element and set the right and left margins to auto...
#container {
top: 3px;
width: 700px;
margin: 0 auto;
text-align: left;
}
The problem most likely is IE's 3-pixel bug and your solution relies on
quirks mode so it is unlikely to solve the problem

Take care,
