Hello,

Please see the two files below, my issue is that the text Oobie should be aligned to the right hand side of the cell but this is failing to happen.

Thanks.

Use the following code instead:
<html>

	<head>
		<title>My Title</title>
		<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css" />
	</head>

	<body>
	
		<table class="FullWidth FullHeight BigPadding">
			<tr>
				<td class="FullWidth StandardBlackBorder SmallPadding" style="{text-align:right;}">Oobie</td>
			</tr>
		</table>
		
	</body>
	
</html>

This is because you used Internet Explorer. In Opera and Firefox it doesn't work and possible in many others. The approach suggested by me should work on most browsers.
