style for formatting <table>
Mon May 14, 2007 10:43 (XFF:

I am editing my website www.naiyang.com. For a uniform design of all pages I try to use styles and stylesheets.
I do not find the style-declaration for positioning a table in the horizontal middle of the page.
<table align="center" style="background-color:#01a89e; width:96%; padding:3;">
I want to change [align="center"] into a form like [style "text-align:center;"] or [style "horizontal-align:center;"] or similar. I do not find the appropriate command neither in my handbook HTML Reference nor at its CD noo in the Internet.
Can you help me? Thanks in advance

      Did you try TABLE{margin:--}; ? If you put de same number de margin is equal,at left,at right,to the top and to bottom ... Or use only TABLE{margin-left:--;margin-right:--} (same number to center )

          I had gone to NVU.Open the editor. If you go to FORMAT you can see a list with sizes for the font. Make the download of NVU if you have have not it. It's free!

          I think NVU can do that,however I only think: I always define the sizes at the style. I do not define the style inside but between <head> and </head> or in a external sheet. It's easier.... more

      This really bugs me about style sheets. To center a container, you're supposed set the left and right margins to "auto". It doesn't work with all browsers.

        Thanks, Sean, for answering immediately. "auto" does not work, but [width:96%; margin-left:2%; margin-right:2%;] works. Best regards, and have a look to www.naiyang.com for nice holidays at Phuket... more
