How do I center text in joomlla 1.5?

I provide joomla designs for clients. I always have the issue of centering text. I have tried using straight html code from dreamweaver but when I apply the positioning format changes from center to left. No matter what I do I cannot get the text centered.

Is the design implementing CSS code?   Check the CSS and see if the theme style sheet is is over riding the code.

Here's the culprit in your css:

body {
      background: #FEFEFE;
      font-family: Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif;
      line-height: 1.3em;
      margin: 0;
      padding: 0;
      font-size: 12px;
      color: #333;
      text-align:center;
}

Change text-align: center; to
text-align: left;

That should fix all body text to align left.

I wanted the text to centered. This was originally text-align left and I changed it to center. The text shows centered in the joomla control panel but on the webpage it is left justified. There is something that i do not understand about joomla because I have this text formatting issue with most joomla designs. Any more suggestions would be appreciated.

When you copy and paste from Dreamweaver do you make sure you do not include the head area of the source code?

In your body are you calling another div layer...if so you need to have the text-align: center; in the div css that your are calling.

For example, I think something like this should work.


<body>
<div id="test">Hello World</div>
</body

css...

#body {
      background: #FEFEFE;
      font-family: Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif;
      line-height: 1.3em;
      margin: 0;
      padding: 0;
      font-size: 12px;
      color: #333;
      align:center;
}

#test {
text-align:center;
}
