After a quick glance. Center is not an accepted value for float. It is either left, right or none.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. img{
  2. float:center;
  3. margin:0 0px 0px 0;
  4. }

Your doctype is incorrect. New pages should always use the 'strict' doctype so I don't know why you are using 'transitional' but here is the corrected version:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"

Yes, there is no such thing as 'float:center'.

Validate your html for that list of errors.
Then validate your CSS for that list of errors.

After fixing those errors, work and test your page in a modern browser. Firefox would be good. Then we can adjust for IEs quirks and bugs. All versions of IE are 10 years behind web standards and should never be used as a reference for how things should work.

Once you get your page working in a modern browser, you can be reasonably assured it will work everywhere, sometimes even IE. But IEs quirks and bugs are known and so are the fixes.

Thank you for your response unfortunately that did not work but i will leave it with "none" in hope it will stop future problems arising.

What did not work?

float:none is the default so there is no need to have that.
