How NOT to Use the < center > Tag to Center Text

March 22, 2011

Centering text and other elements can easily be done with the CSS text-align property. It can be applied to a division, the p tag – pretty much any block-level element.

Applying this to an internal or external stylesheet:

p {text-align: center;}

or this to inline styling:

<p style="text-align: center;">This is centered text</p>

will center your text.
