You can use

<center> text here </center>

open the tag at the start of the body and close the tag at the end of the body.

Hi,

I did what you suggested,
It will not work successfully in combination with
the code I have designed my website in.

I designed this website very different from
what most people would do. Please take
a look at the source on my website.
www.AllGreenedUp.net

Here is a small sample of my code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="stmenu.js"></script>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Services</title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
body {
	background-image: url(Images/backgroundmain.jpg);
	background-repeat: repeat;
}
#apDiv1 {
	position:absolute;
	left:0px;
	top:2px;
	width:944px;
	height:782px;
	z-index:1;
}
#apDiv2 {
	position:absolute;
	left:51px;
	top:250px;
	width:333px;
	height:351px;
	z-index:2;
-->
</style></head>

Try adding the following lines inside the body css like :

body {
background-image: url(Images/backgroundmain.jpg);
background-repeat: repeat;
padding:0px 0px 0px 0px;
text-align: center;
margin: 0px auto;
}

Should work ... otherwise we'll ve to look deeper into the positioning of divs .... i.e position="absolute" .... i personally dont like it !!!

'Sure, Is this what you needed?' (attatched)

I wasnt sure which files to give you.
I thought the code might be directly what you needed?
Thanks - Jessica

Please try this and try to modify this structure according to your needs ...... and do let me know .... sorry but i ll be around .... kinda tied up at the moment ....

No worries, I appreciate any time you have to give.

The results arent good. It doesnt seem to work.
I am not sure what is wrong with it, or why it will not work.
Could it be the fact that I haven't created a container in this code?

When I tried your code, It shifted entirely to the left, and the text
shifted to the top. ( Right on top of the banner )
Now, I realize that you have used tables,
(I am not the best at modifying these, may need a little guidance.)


*On a quick note: I wanted to know if I will be able to see my results of the changes
I have made when I save my files. MUST I upload them to my server first (hosting site)
and THEN go look to see the changes? Or can I just save the page in dreamweaver and take a look on firefox?

(Thanks once again!)

Two things I noticed:

1. A value of zero with a unit of measure attached causes Firefox to throw away the style. Do not write 0px in styles. Just write 0.

2. The center tag is deprecated. Do not count on the ability to use it in the future.

If we will begin not to use the 'Center' tag,
than What will we be using? (% or px?)

sorry, was busy doing my own stuff .... anyways ...

yes i used tables ..... purely for more discipline ... hahaha

all the shifting and rubbish happened because i didnt have any images that you are using ..... so i could not see what is exactly going where ....

yes ... it would be better if you upload it to the server and then test ..... i'll guide you .... no problem there ...

i just got a huge help from another poster here .... this is how it works .... you get help you give help .....

Hey, Its all good...chinmayu :0)
Thanks for your time.-> www.AllGreenedUp.Net Our Current Website. This is what it looks like right now. I have been messing around with it all day and I still cant get it all centered correctly.

HERE is what I am aiming for this page to look like: (Just so you can have a basic concept)

I have tried to modify my current website (look at source, www.AllGreenedUp.net) and here is what I currently have:

Should I be creating/including the 'apDiv3' with a wrap?
Or, how exactly did you get 'apDiv2' where it is centered?
(So I can replicate it and modify them on the other pages to my website.)

You seriously have no idea how much I appreciate you help.
Its great, your great, thanks so much for any feedback!

kindly make the following changes in your code.

</style></head><body>[B]<center>[/B]

and in the first table include

<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" class="style4" [B]align="center"[/B]>

. The center tag has to be closed before the end of the body tag. You have to give center align to both. Then the text will be aligned almost to the center. Have a great day!!

I'm having a similar issue. The "index.html" image seems to tile instead of centering in the browser.

This is my code:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>..::::..</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>
<center>
<body background="index.html.png">
</body>
</center>
</html>

^^^The index image tiles instead of centering across the browser view.

Do I have the center tags out of place somehow?

Use a big main Div...use margins i.e margin left auto margin right auto..put everything in it. or else use left 50% margin -(half the value of your div width). It sud work.

add this div#wrap { margin: 0 auto;} to the css file and then in the HTML you would add the following at the beginning and the end of the body code:<body> all other html code between here
