An easy one for most, but I've only just started to work with some JavaScript, VBScript and ASP

I have a page where I have session variables

session("Brand")
session("BrandTitle")

I would like to use the HTML code
<center>
....
</center>

if the session("Brand") = "RAC", otherwise it should not center the items on the page

Thank you, Phil

<html>
...
...

<?php if ($_SESSION['Brand']=="RAC"){echo "<center>";}?>
Blah
<?php if ($_SESSION['Brand']=="RAC"){echo "</center>";}?>

OK.  This is pretty easy to do.  I am going to show you an overly easy example.  You need to save the page as an ASP page.

<%d
session("Brand")
session("BrandTitle")

if session("Brand") = "RAC" then
response.write("<center>")
end if
%>
.... Here you can just put standard html.  Since we removed it out of < %  and  % >  you do not have to response.write.
<%
if session("Brand") = "RAC" then
response.write("</center>")
end if
%>

Thanks rockman.  I missed it.

<%
session("Brand")
session("BrandTitle")

if session("Brand") = "RAC" then
response.write("<center>")
end if
%>
.... Here you can just put standard html.  Since we removed it out of < %  and  % >  you do not have to response.write.
<%
if session("Brand") = "RAC" then
response.write("</center>")
end if
%>

I spotted the 'd' mistake thanks

Not a chance to test the code, but I am certain it will work as I simply couldn't remember (or find) the command I wanted
