Content DIV not Centering, and Border.. Fades?

Alright.

Here's the link for the site:

You may have read my other post and start to wonder why I'm posting again. Well, we've decided to scrap the search field in general. However, now there's new issues:

-In both Firefox and IE7 (not sure about 6), the border on the content div (the middle DIV), looks like it fades near the bottom. As well, you can see a tinge of red. I'm not entirely what it is or why it's there.

-In Firefox the center DIV isn't centered, where as in IE7 it centers itself perfectly. What's missing (or added) to make this DIV become unaligned in firefox.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Fixed the red border fade issue I was having. However, I cannot figure out how to center the DIV(s) in the middle. I used a <center> tag for the images above it, but it doesn't work for the div.

Any help, please?

I'm guessing you fixed it by the time I came along. I tried it with IE7, Opera 9.26 and Firefox 2.0.0.12 and they all look fine to me.

The center div on FF doesn't actually center with the layout.

And now, in Firefox, the two "Hot Buy" divs won't sperate. I've tried quite a few solutions that, in the end, weren't solutions.

Any ideas?

IE is in quirks mode. You will never get IE to attempt to perform like a modern browser, such as Firefox/Opera/Safari without a proper doctype. See the article in Howtos at the top of this page.

I have a doctype. How's it in "quirks mode"?

In your first post your URL looks messed up, so I'm assuming it's supposed to be this one: http://www.autumnsolutions.org/

If so then I don't see any doctype on the page.

No, I have my server set to read sub-folders, as I'm hosting multiple domains.

The domain I posted,

http://www.autumnsolutions.org/autumnsolutions.org/CDT

Is 100% accurate for what I want you to see.

That wasn't working for me yesterday but it does now.

You have some extraneous mis-encoded characters in your doctype. Are you mixing utf-8 with something else in your editor? They are around the quote marks. Don't know if this causes a problem in the browser but the validator says it can't check your page at all.

edit: Yes, you are in qurks.

I edited the DOC TYPE with no avail to the problem.

The DT is straight from DreamWeaver 8.
