Menu position relative (site is centered)? Please help

i plan to use the dhtml menu version 3.3.19 for a noncommercial site. The problem is: the left position of the menu is specified in pixels. I do not understand the code very well, but for my project i have a layout which is always centered on the browser page. Sadly, the menu does not move with the rest of the page.
Is there any way to make the menu move with the centered layout as well?

Thanks in advance,

You should really get up to the current version. 3.3.19 is well over 20 levels down from the last release in the v3 series, 3.5.15. More importantly, v3 is no longer supported or developed.

v5 is now at RC40. That puts the version you're trying to use over 50 levels down. v5 is the way to go, both for support and features. Get it at

True. But for the moment, i like to stick with this one.
I believe my question is simple enough to answer even if the version i use is not the newest. Perhaps it's not even possible, that's an anwer too.
Now i found out, that the menu can be placed in a table, which makes it stick inside vertically, but remains on the left position. That's a start. But i don't know how to solve the rest.

With version 5 you can use the sample from here:

Version 5 is so much better, does so many more things, and there is a converter so that you can convert your existing menu. As for version 3, I'm not sure if in that particular version of 3 you have this but check for
// Screen Position - here you can use "center;left;right;middle;top;bottom" or a combination of "center:middle"
get rid of the number of the left position of the menu, just leave it blank with just the comma, and put "center" in that screen position line. It should be someplace around the border width.
