    Exclamation Picture position changes on wide angle laptop.

    Problem solved by altering :-

    #wrap {
    position: relative;
    width: 950px;..............................This was 1000px and made the page too wide for its content.
    margin: 1 auto;

    Also VIPStephan helped by supplying an additional piece of code for my javascript that amongst other things, selects the random pictures.

    // this adds the image within the anchor
    var img = imagelink.appendChild(new_img);
    img.setAttribute('src', img_rnd[i]);
    img.style.height = '400px';
    img.style.width = '600px';


    The picture on my site moves right on the laptop wide angle which results in a very wide and ugly gap between the menu text on the left. The relative positions are OK on the standard PC. Is there a way round this?




       -  CSS 
        position: absolute;
         position: absolute;
           right: 3em;
           color:white;       }
