i tried this;



      Untitled
   
     





            
            hello 1

            
            hello 2

            
            hello 3
            
            


            



it aligned in the center, but it aligned them on top of each other rather than side-by-side

    <div id="LeftBox">

    <div id="RighBox">
        <p>
             hello 2</p>
    </div>
    <div id="ThirdBox">

If by center of the page you men horizontally centered, then this is it:
<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled</title>
<style type="text/css">
#h1   {width:200px; text-align:center; display: inline;}
#h2   {width:200px; text-align:center; display: inline;}
#h3   {width:200px; text-align:center; display: inline;}
#wrapper {clear: both; margin-right: auto; margin-left: auto; width: 100%;}
</style>
</head>
<body>
      <div align="center" id="wrapper">
      <div id="h1">hello 1</div>
      <div id="h2">hello 2</div>
      <div id="h3">hello 3</div>
      </div>
</body>
</html>
