    divs show outside containers

    my page is all over the place as the outer box is not containing all the content.

    should be...

    centered menu at top
    centered header image
    centered main body content
    centered footer

    but the right side image section is coming outside the container2010 div box.

    Hello again jasonpc1,
    It looks like it fits width-wise so you must mean that #container2010 is not enclosing #vancont so it looks like it's breaking out to the bottom?

    Try clearing the float like this -
    #container2010 {
    	background: #ecedee;
    	width: 0 auto;
    	background: #f00 url(images/containerbg2010.jpg) repeat-y; /*added a color for demonstration only*/
    	padding: 0 20px 0 30px;
    	overflow: auto;
    Here's how that method of clearing floats works.

    Is that what you're talking about?
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad
