I've been searching for a while today and cannot seem to find the right answer. I am trying to center some elements (body, div, td, etc) for FF3 and IE7.

The doc type I am using is:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

The CSS version is 2.1

The CSS works fine in IE7 and mostly works in FF3, except for the centering.

I have tried "margin: auto;", "margin: 0 auto;", "margin-left: auto;", "margin-right: auto;" in addition to "text-align: center;" and I also tried setting the div width to 100% along with these attempts.

I tried on the elements themselves as well as the parent elements.

So... now what? Also, if anyone has a link to a read-able and manageable reference to CSS in FF, that would be great.

Thanks.

This is frustrating. No matter what I do, I can't get FireFox to center anything - isn't this SUPPOSE to be a better browser?

This is how I center mine:
body { text-align: center; }
div#container {margin: 0 auto; }

Now, just put your content inside the container .DIV. That worked for me on my last cross-browser test...
