      <h2>Main content here</h2>
      <p>The main nav links above will remain centred in the viewport even though the logo and sign-in links are uneven lengths. The main caveat is that the nav links will not be allowed to wrap as white-space:nowrap is used to force them onto one line.
        Therefore you will need to use a media query to change the behaviour at about 860px or whatever your layout requires.</p>
