CSS Menuwriter 2 shows only text in IE8

Hello, I'm new here. I downloaded the CSS menu, I know how it works but. When I want to preview it in IE8 I only see text and I think that I know for sure that the paths are OK.
It

Attached are some files, so you can see the view in Dreamweaver CS4, the code and the online view and from the Webassist menu.

Who can help me?
Thank you very much

Your page is missing a doctype tag, so IE will not render CSS properly.

ad the following at line 1 of your page:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

missing code

Yessss!!! You are right!
I deleted this because otherwise my webpage doesn't center exact in the middle of my screen. Do you have a suggestion?

<table width="100%" height="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr>
<td><table width="1000px" height="600px" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="1004">

Yhank you so much.

This does not seam right:
<table width="1000px" height="600px" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

the measument for table width and hights is assumed to be pixels, change that to:
<table width="1000" height="600" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

I changed the code

Hello, I changed my code of the table but that doesn't work:
see also:
index-menu.htm (this is an testversion).

And I'd like to have the website exactly in the middle (absolute middle). Normally I deleted the code on rule 1, but than my CSS menu doesn't work, as you said.

Thank you very very much so far.

This has to be done using CSS.


add class="centered" to the table tag:
<table class="centered" width="1000" height="600" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">


then add the following CSS:
.centered {
position: absolute;
top: 50%;
left: 50%;
width:1000px;
height: 600px;
margin-left:-500px;
margin-top:-300px;
}
