I want to center an image in an HTML document that I am doing.  The only thing to be centered is an image with the dimensions that are 576 pixels wide by 260 pixels tall.  How do I center this image in a blank HTML or ASP.NET page?

This is a very simple way to do it.  There are other ways that may be suitable.  Put the name of your image file in the src="576x260.jpg" part.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
 "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

<html>
<head>
<title>Center image</title>
</head>
<body>
<center>
<h1>Center image</h1>
<img alt="576x260" src="576x260.jpg" height="359" width="576" border="1px" />
</center>
</body>
</html>

A CSS-version -->

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>Unbenanntes Dokument</title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
#centa {width: 580px; margin: 0 auto; text-align: center;}
-->
</style>
</head>

<body>
<div id="centa">
<h1>Center image</h1>
<img src="01.gif" width="576" height="260" alt="576x260" />
</div>
</body>
</html>

If you know the width of your image, the easiest (and cleanest) way is to add a CSS rule to your image.

@DaveBaldwin: just a quick poin -  <center> is deprecated. Also it's not valid in a STRICT DOCTYPE.

<img src="your)image.jpg" style="width:576px; margin:0px auto; display:block;" />
