Hi all. I'm having a problem in that I can't get the table cell text OR the background to center in IE7. Works fine in Mozilla. Text-align is set to left on one of the contianing divs but that doesn't seem to affect it.

CSS

.browseCategoryImage {
background: #FFF url( 'images/browsecategorybg.png' ) no-repeat  center center;
vertical-align:top;
height: 200px;
text-align:center;
}

PHP

<?php if( !defined( '_VALID_MOS' ) && !defined( '_JEXEC' ) ) die( 'Direct Access to '.basename(__FILE__).' is not allowed.' ); 
mm_showMyFileName(__FILE__);

$iCol = 1;
if( !isset( $categories_per_row )) {
	$categories_per_row = 3;
}
$cellwidth = intval( 100 / $categories_per_row );

if( empty( $categories )) {
	return; // Do nothing, if there are no child categories!
}
?>
<br/>
<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<?php
foreach( $categories as $category ) {
	if ($iCol == 1) { // this is an indicator wether a row needs to be opened or not
		echo "<tr>\n";
	}
	?>
	
	<td class="browseCategoryImage" width="<?php echo $cellwidth ?>">
		<br />


         
	<a class="browseCategoryTitle" title="<?php echo $category["category_name"] ?>" href="<?php $sess->purl(URL."index.php?option=com_virtuemart&amp;page=shop.browse&amp;category_id=".$category["category_id"]) ?>"> 
			<?php
			if ( $category["category_thumb_image"] ) {
				echo ps_product::image_tag( $category["category_thumb_image"], "alt=\"".$category["category_name"]."\"", 0, "category");
				echo "<br /><br/>\n";
			}
			echo $category["category_name"];
			echo $category['number_of_products'];
			?>
		 </a><br/>
	</td>
	
	
	<?php
	// Do we need to close the current row now?
	if ($iCol == $categories_per_row) { // If the number of products per row has been reached
		echo "</tr>\n";
		$iCol = 1;
	}
	else {
		$iCol++;
	}
}
// Do we need a final closing row tag?
if (sizeof( $categories ) < $categories_per_row) {
	echo "</tr>\n";
}
?>
</table>

- Alignment is not inherited from div to table. You need to apply the style to the td tags.

- The php script may be overriding the style.

- If there is any syntax error in the style, the entire style becomes invalid in some browsers. You have syntax errors, because you have attributes without parameters in the background style.

Wrong:

no-repeat

Right:

background-repeat="no-repeat"

Sorry for interference, but you'll have to correct this!

There's nothing wrong with his shorthand background css statement: background: #FFF url( 'images/browsecategorybg.png' ) no-repeat center center; In fact it is absolutely correct and how shorthand background statements work.
But, there is more than one error in your sugestion:
cite: background-repeat="no-repeat" 1. The "=" mark is not allowed as css property/value delimiter;
2. the (") quotation marks in the property value, neither.

This syntax is not allowed on html element inline style attribute declarations, either.
