Autofitting Help!

Niner49
Alright I'm working on a project and I was just wondering how you auto fit the content of a webpage to fit any screen dimension? So that when a person with large widesreen monitor views my page it appears roughly the same as a person that views on a smaller monitor.

This is just a template so far: webpages.uncc.edu/~cpedwar1/project.htm

Your link doesn't work.

Not sure what you mean by autofit. Do you mean center or make the content expand/shrink?

I'm wasn't sure what it was called. But I hava a background color and the content of the page on top off that. I would like to center the content on the page, and have it expand and shrink as needed for different monitors. My desktop has a small monitor and it appears to be centered on it, but on my laptop the content on the left margin with open space to the right.

here is the code the code

Thanks for any help you can give

I have to leave and will be in/out for most the day but here are a couple of notes you need to work on.

1) Without a proper doctype, you will never get IE to perform correctly; like modern browsers do. See the article about doctypes under "Howtos" above.

2) In your css, all lengths must have units assigned to them, ie, "width: 25px;"
