margin: auto etc and MSIE again

Thanks to the people who helped me with centering a block of text in
MSIE 5.5 in the site I am developing at
http://www.members.iinet.net.au/~abell1/test/index.htm with city.css
at http://www.members.iinet.net.au/~abell1/test/city.css. I think I
have that under control now, though I won't be able to test it until

But the recommended technique of enclosing the block in a div or p
with text-align:centre and using text-align: left in the enclosed
block doesn't work for centering a menu in its div in MSIE 6. If I
use an enclosing element with text-align: centre it centres the menu
in the viewport (not in the div) in MSIE 6 though it works for
Mozilla, Netscape and Opera.

The relevant part of city.css is
#navigation a {
display: block;
text-decoration: none;
margin: auto;
width: 8.7em;
color: #381D7A;
background-color: #AABADD;
border: 1px solid;
border-color: #FFF #036 #036 #FFF;
padding-left: 0.2em;
This works well in MSIE 6, Mozilla, Netscape, and Opera, but MSIE 5.5
puts the menu flush against the left edge of the viewport.
How can I the menu options to centre in the navigation div in MSIE 5.5
and MSIE 6?

Thanks in advance, Alex

Updating my bag of tricks again. What's the level of support for margin: auto. Is this widely supported now amongst almost all browsers? It's a common request to have a "centered" page. I don't remember which major browser didn't support margin: auto, but there was a common hack with some "text-aligns". Is it time to drop the hack? Jeff
