It doesn't work. Maybe I didn't run this correctly but it doesn't work.

I am not sure I understand the layout, but in any case as a side note, the <header> and <footer> elements are HTML5 so if you want to style them in IE <9, you'll have to include the HTML5Shiv. Unlike other browsers, IE will not style unknown elements by default.

@ LastMitch there are a few left over style elements that do not need to be there try taking them out.
First the php in the footer tag, background-reapeat:norepeat in,header,centerbody div.@JorgeM Thanks for the heads up i didnt take any of the styling opcode into consideration due to just being a local project. As it stands its cheap,but you can build of it i say!

Ok here is an updated version of my custom layout.

Ok here is an updated version of my custom layout.

May I ask what are you doing?

This is not good organized code snippet.

The website shouldn't have a scroll bar going rightward, if the scroll bar is downward is fine but not like this:

6a199aea065568fb48705b35a536c9d7

commented: Thanks problem fixed tho set margin left and right for header ,footer,centerbody to 0 +1

my layout continues to be cheap. :P

ok so you found bugs i will have to set backup locally.

lastmitch throw some php in there for me, and show me.

here is what i was using it for locally
bd9ed2809735501b70cb0b54c76d4731

Heres layout without horizontal scrolling.
What does anyone think? 97ca1d7c1445ad1b3e9b4f6b24bebe64

As far as I am aware, <header> and <footer> are to be used inside <body>.

Oh well i just updated it lazily thanks for the heads up,Assembly Guy.
Also here is another screen shot with some css3. dc243de33ec44221008cc4b0fe0d5a64
