I'm sure this is a simple question; but I'm trying to use a java scripted scrolling text box on my page but it keeps defaulting to the left of the page. How can I center it? Thanks.

Do you have a link to the script you were describing? It would help.

Also note that JAVA is different from Javascript.

To center things in HTML, use the <center> tag. That is all I could tell you, considering you didn't provide a link to your code, nor did you provide it. Please, do what rangana asked and give us your code.

To center things in HTML, use the <center> tag.


center tag is deprecated and should'nt be advocated (http://www.codehelp.co.uk/html/deprecated.html).

WHOOPS!! I hadn't known that the <center> tag was deprecated...

Sorry! Instead, use align="center";

or in the style attribute : text-align:center; - forgot that one

It looks like you haven't taken the time to read the link I've provided on the deprecated tags and attributes.

align is a deprecated attribute too (http://www.codehelp.co.uk/html/deprecated.html) (on some elements).

you could however get around this by using a container which is set to "text-align:center;"

Then placing your srolling div inside it with "text-align:left;"

By the way, how do you get those yellow divs to hold that stuff? Does it come free with being a Senior Coder?
