Centering a table on the page Centering a table on the page Adam5000 msg:3460402 3:59 pm on Sep 25, 2007 (gmt 0) I've got a page with a two row, two column table on it, and I've specified the width of the table as 300px as described below.
<table style="width: 300px">
<tr> <td> <p>Text 1 here.</p> </td> <td> <p>Text 2 here.</p> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <p>Text 3 here.</p> </td> <td> <p>Text 4 here.</p> </td> </tr> </table>
Right now, the table is aligned with the left margin of the page, and I'd like it to be centered between the left and right margins.

You can set text-align: center on the parent element and use margin: 0 auto; on the table itself. Robin_reala msg:3460454 4:47 pm on Sep 25, 2007 (gmt 0)
You don't actually need the text-align: center on the parent, just the magin: 0 auto on the table will do. Adam5000 msg:3460578 6:23 pm on Sep 25, 2007 (gmt 0)
Superb Robin and Gregg
That worked just fine. I had several tables to do, but they were all the same. They're all centered now and they look great. And because I'm using an external style sheet, I was able to do five pages all at the same time.
Fabulous Robin and Gregg
