Centering within nested table...

I have a bar graph that is updating on the fly using javascript.  The outer table has a light color that shows the outer limit, the inner table is the actual progress.  I want to show a percentage of progress inside the progress bar, centered.

Right now it centers the percentage figure in the nested table.  Is it possible to center it in the outer table and still keep the structure of the bar graph the same.

I'm open to a css solution as well.
<table width=600 border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0>
<tr>
<td width=100% height=30 bgcolor=#cccccc valign=bottom>
	<table id='graph_table' style='width:250px' height=30 border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0>
	<tr>
	<td id='graph_td' height=100% width=100% valign=bottom bgcolor=#666666 align='center' valign='middle'>
	<span id='total_credits' style='color:white; font-weight:bold;'>48%</span>
	</td>
	</tr>
	</table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

zemond,

Thanks for replying.  I actually need just the percentage to be aligned in the center, not the nested table.

Any ideas on that?  I'm going to double the points up to 250 on this one.

		<td width="100%" height="30" align="left" bgcolor="#cccccc" valign="bottom">
		
        	<span id="total_credits" style="color:white; position:absolute; width:600px; text-align:center; line-height:30px; font-weight:bold;">48%</span>
			<table id="graph_table" style="width:250px" height="30" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
