When do i use <DIV ALIGN=CENTER> and <CENTER>
Posted on 1998-07-19
I am curious to find out when i am supposed to use the <DIV align=center> and <CENTER>. I read that <CENTER> is a netscape specific tag. I also found out that Frontpage puts:
when you want to center something. My thinking is that "maybe" the earlier versions of browsers ie. Explorer 3.0 may not understand netscapes <center> command and only understand <div>, but Netscape 1.0 probably only understands <center>. So Microsoft, being nice guys (grin) as they are, they decided to keep full compatibility by putting both tags together. Beats me.
If i am expecting Netscape 2.0-Netscape 4.5 viewers and Internet Explorer 3.0 - 4.0 viewers mostly, which is the best tag to use for center or is it WISE to just leave both in. Take into consideration other not so popular browsers that may visit my site.
