Hi,

I'm new and haev been unable to find the answer to this question in your database (but have found many other answers!).

I have a fairly siimple html page in which I have created a scroll bar inside a table using a div tag. No matter what I seem to try I can not get the table to be centered (it was cented befoer I added the div tag). I am using IE here is the par tof my code that I think is relavent. Any help is appreciated. I am including center tags I have used after searching you database that do not seem to work.

<div ALIGN=center style="text-align:center;overFlow:auto;width: 700px;height: 400px"><center>

 
<TABLE Align = Center WIDTH=700 BORDER=0 bordercolor="WHITE" CELLSPACING=8 CELLPADDING=0 bgcolor="WHITE">
 <TR>
 <TD BGCOLOR="WHITE">
<A HREF="albertcd.html">
<IMG SRC="albertcd.gif" WIDTH=150 HEIGHT=150 BORDER=0 ALIGN=LEFT></TD></TR></A>

First thing is you should close the anchor tags, </a> before the </td> tags.

Another thing is, you should increase the width from 700px in the <di> tag , or reduce the table width.

If you are not inclined to changing the width, then, put one more <div> tag.

<div align="center">
<center>
<div ALIGN="center" style="text-align:center;overFlow:auto;width: 700px;height: 400px">
<center>

<TABLE WIDTH=700 BORDER=0 bordercolor="WHITE" CELLSPACING=8 CELLPADDING=0 bgcolor="WHITE">
 <TR>
 <TD BGCOLOR="WHITE">
<A HREF="albertcd.html">
<IMG SRC="albertcd.gif" WIDTH=150 HEIGHT=150 BORDER=0 ALIGN=LEFT></A></TD></TR>
