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).

// 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 {
