Css equivalent of <table align='center'>.. </table>

Discussion in 'CSS' started by fatabbot, Apr 27, 2007.

    Hi,

    I need to get a table in the middle of a container. When I add align='center' to the table it gets centered. But how to get the same result with css? The only attribute there is text-align, which just centers the text inside the table.

    What's the equivalent css style for align='center'?

    Thanks

    There is no single center align tag for css. You can do this though:


    body { text-align:center; }
    div { text-align:left; }

    .CenteredDiv { margin-left:auto; margin-right:auto; width:780px; }


    That works in all browsers.

    simplier code

    #wrapper {
    margin: auto;
    width: whatever in pixels;
    }

    this is the wrapper that wraps everything in it
    just use this
    <div id="wrapper">
    ...
    </div>

    You just put the CSS tag

    text-align:center;

    Into your CSS sylesheet as per usual under your style name.

    Then just class your table, by using a div or including the class in your body tag or any way you want to:D

    Hope that helps!
