    That's Geocities for you. Notice the code it stuck above your doctype? That
    throws IE into quirks mode and kills your auto margin #wrapper centering.

    You can add "text-align:center" to the body styling and "text-align:left" to
    your #wrapper styling.

    THANKS...

    That helped me a lot...
    It is sad that there are soo many compatibility problems between the 2 most
    popular browsers...

    Also what is quirks mode ?? :embarrassment;

    I have updatet the main page and now it looks better in both browsers...

    I have another question , at nearly the end of the main page i have 2 small
    images with text under them ("licensed from:greek tourist organization,etc" and
    "member of : R.A.T.A,etc") and i have included each image with the relative
    text in a AP Div and putted them at the desired position.

    My prob is that in geocities with the ads at the right side the AP Divs stay
    in the same position of the page when the visitor click and remove the ads and
    that is a problem because all my other content move (like i want)
    Can i make something else for these images/content (like simple Divs) so that
    they move with the whole page?

    I have tried including them in separate divs and trying wordspacing but i have
    not succeeded...
    Any help/suggestion will be appreciated...

    The geocities problem will not go away until you host the website somewhere other than geocities.

    geocities writes that code to all pages hosted at there site.

    You should consider getting a domain name and a web host for your website.
