Going too deep into this idea......


If I were building an advanced editor...
that allowed inserting and styling of divs and stuff like that and the user
selected a paragrah (<p> not just the text inside it) and hit [center] I
would have margin:auto applied to the <p>. If they selected the text inside
the <p> I'd set <p style="text-align:center">

If for some reason they had a single paragraph with a bunch of breaks
(shift+return) and highlighted some of the lines in the middle of the
paragraph and hit [center] I'd put a span around the selected content with
text-align center style.
