Site not looking right

My site is not looking right in IE8 or IE9. Everything shifts to the left. Can you help me? USASOC%20Fallen%20Heroes%20Home%20Page.html

in the CSSSculptor/1ColumnFixedCenteredHeaderandFooter_memorial_css/screen.css file, change:

body {
background-color: #000000;
color: #666666;
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 11px;
margin: 0 0 0 0; /* Sets the margin properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
padding: 0 0 0 0; /* Sets the padding properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
text-align: center; /* Centers the page content container in IE 5 browsers. */
position: absolute;
float: left;
width: inherit;
}



to;

body {
background-color: #000000;
color: #666666;
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 11px;
margin: 0 0 0 0; /* Sets the margin properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
padding: 0 0 0 0; /* Sets the padding properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */

Learning

Could you tell me what I did wrong and how it was fixed. I am still new to this.

the problem was the
position: absolute;
float: left;


attribute applied to the body tag.

this was moving (floating) the entire page to the left.

by changing that to:
/*position: absolute;
float: left;*/

those attributes where commented out, so the browser would ignore them.

One other question

I don't see the margin that I have at the bottom - 50px of the outer wrapper. Did I do something wrong on that?

IE

I cannot see the margins in IE8 or IE9. It looks fine in Chrome. BTW, thanks for your help.
