  23. Hi Vrinda! I want your e-mail id so I can explain the problem pictorially. In IE 8, all the content was on the left side and the right and the center portion of the site was totally empty. Then I checked it on Google Chrome, it's all right. I think something is wrong with my default web browser. Sorry about the confusion.
