    Oversized <HTML> element?

    Hi, the website I'm working on has a horizontal scroll bar, and to me it looks as if the <html> element is wider than 100%. I guess it could also be something else.

    But I just cannot figure out what or why and would be grateful for any help.

    Also, I've just noticed that the <body> element doesn't seem to sit right at the top of the page. Why is that?!

    Many thanks

    For some reason your footer has {padding:20px 0 20px 279px;}
    That 279px looks like it should be 0.

    Bingo! The footer was the problem, not the padding but the width in my case.

    BUT, the second issue I've mentioned remains: The <body> doesn't seem to start right at the top of the page. Any ideas?

    It's caused by the top margin here:

    Code:
    #container {
    margin: 20px auto 0 auto;
    width: 959px;
    padding: 0 20px;
    }
    You have PHP errors at the bottom of your page right now.
