Eventually <DIV ALIGN=CENTER> will do what you desire. In the absence of DIV you could use the <CENTER> tag with the understanding that it will only work in Netscape, W3-mode, and the OS/2 browser, and will probably never make it into the official HTML spec. <DIV> also has the nice capibility of being able to add a CLASS attribute to specify its semantics and can specify many other alignment styles. Maybe we can get <DIV> published in 2.1 so that we can start using it sooner rather than later. -- Lou Montulli http://www.mcom.com/people/montulli/ Netscape Communications Corp.
