PHP (specifically osCommerce) Slight modification to a menu, automatically created in a loop

The below sample of code creates a menu within osCommerce's index.php - The menu is made of hyperlinked, small, square images and it displays 3 menu items per line.

There are currently only 4 menu items, and so there is only one item on the second line. This is displayed to the left. I would prefer it centered beneath the second menu item on the first line.

What can I modify in the loop to do this? (Note: It's only really the bit near the bottom you need to be looking at I believe).

------------------------code (HTML / PHP)--------------------------------------

<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">
              <tr>
<?php
    if (isset($cPath) && strpos('_', $cPath)) {
// check to see if there are deeper categories within the current category
      $category_links = array_reverse($cPath_array);
      for($i=0, $n=sizeof($category_links); $i<$n; $i++) {
        $categories_query = tep_db_query("select count(*) as total from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.parent_id = '" . (int)$category_links[$i] . "' and c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "'");
        $categories = tep_db_fetch_array($categories_query);
        if ($categories['total'] < 1) {
          // do nothing, go through the loop
        } else {
          $categories_query = tep_db_query("select c.categories_id, cd.categories_name, c.categories_image, c.parent_id from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.parent_id = '" . (int)$category_links[$i] . "' and c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' order by sort_order, cd.categories_name");
          break; // we've found the deepest category the customer is in
        }
      }
    } else {
      $categories_query = tep_db_query("select c.categories_id, cd.categories_name, c.categories_image, c.parent_id from " . TABLE_CATEGORIES . " c, " . TABLE_CATEGORIES_DESCRIPTION . " cd where c.parent_id = '" . (int)$current_category_id . "' and c.categories_id = cd.categories_id and cd.language_id = '" . (int)$languages_id . "' order by sort_order, cd.categories_name");
    }

    $number_of_categories = tep_db_num_rows($categories_query);

    $rows = 0;
    while ($categories = tep_db_fetch_array($categories_query)) {
      $rows++;
      $cPath_new = tep_get_path($categories['categories_id']);
      $width = (int)(100 / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW) . '%';
        
      echo '                <td align="center" class="smallText" width="' . $width . '" valign="top"><a href="' . tep_href_link(FILENAME_DEFAULT, $cPath_new) . '">' . tep_image(DIR_WS_IMAGES . $categories['categories_image'], $categories['categories_name'], SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_WIDTH, SUBCATEGORY_IMAGE_HEIGHT) . '<br>' . $categories['categories_name'] . '</a></td>' . "\n";
      if ((($rows / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW) == floor($rows / MAX_DISPLAY_CATEGORIES_PER_ROW)) && ($rows != $number_of_categories)) {
        echo '              </tr><tr><td height="18"> </td></tr>' . "\n";
        echo '              <tr>' . "\n";
      }
    }

// needed for the new products module shown below

    $new_products_category_id = $current_category_id;
?>
              </tr>
            </table>

    $number_of_categories = tep_db_num_rows($categories_query);
