I can't get the display results to align in the center when displayed in a browser....what is wrong with my code?
<?php
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","uname","password");
if (!$con)
  {
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }

mysql_select_db("mydatabase", $con);

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM mytable");

echo "<table border='6'>
<tr>
<th>First Name</th>
<th>Last Name</th>
<th>Status</th>
<th></th>
</tr>";

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
  {
  echo "<tr>";
  echo "<td>" align="center". $row['fname'] . "</td>";
  echo "<td>" align="center". $row['lname'] . "</td>";
  echo "<td>" align="center". $row['status'] . "</td>";
  echo "</tr>";
  }
echo "</table>";


?>

echo "<td align='center'>". $row['fname'] . "</td>";

Of course you have to change all <td> tags to <td align='center'>
