This is easy, just enclose the entire thing in a centered element. For example:


<div align="center">put the script and its ilayer here</div>

You could use <p align="center"></p> as well, or get even more creative and stick the thing somewhere inside a table. Just make sure that wherever you put it, you allow enough horizontal space for its width.

<div align="center">put the script and its ilayer here</div>Just so you know, the preferred way to centre content is to set equal margins on the element:


.centred {
margin: 0 auto;
width: ??;
}
<div class="centred">...</div>The align attribute and the center element are deprecated. The latter was never really very good at centring due to various interpretations of a rather vague specification. The align attribute is equally vague, which is why it too should be dropped.

See a recent discussion (http://groups.google.co.uk/groups?hl=en&lr=&safe=off&threadm=N0Y_d.408970%24PH1.308838%40amsnews05.chello.com) in Usenet.

Thanks, like the questioner in the link you supply, I too have wondered what the applicable method would be as we blithely deprecate <center> and align="center". Seems it is a work in progress, interesting though.
