I'm using the code below but I want to center the text "Photograph by name" under the picture it is currently left aligned from what I can see. Also, I could shift it to the right a few characters but I am not sure how to do that

print "</table>\n";
print "<p>&nbsp;</p>\n";
print "<table align=center width=800px cellpadding=15 cellspacing=0 id=gray_top_border>\n";
print "<tr>\n";
print "<td>\n";
print "<h3 class=no_margin-top><a href=/path/fcst/index.cgi>Vog Forecast Discussion</a></h3>\n";
print "<p><a href=/path/index.cgi><img src=/path/image.jpg alt=\"Big Island logo image\" width=220 height=220 /></a></p>\n";
print "<p><em>Photograph by Name</em></p>\n";
print "<p><a href=/path2/index.cgi>Daily discussion</a> that explains in words the expected distribution of vog concentrations over the Hawaiian Islands as a result of the interaction of the volcanic emissions and the current and forecast weather.  </p>\n";
print "</td>\n";
print "<td>\n";

Much easier to read/write and maintain if you get rid of all those individual print statements.

Try this:

print <<EOF;
</table>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<table align=center width=800px cellpadding=15 cellspacing=0 id=gray_top_border>
<tr>
<td>
<h3 class=no_margin-top><a href=/path/fcst/index.cgi>Vog Forecast Discussion</a></h3>
<p><a href=/path/index.cgi><img src=/path/image.jpg alt="Big Island logo image" width=220 height=220 /></a></p>
<p align="center"><em>Photograph by Name</em></p>
<p><a href=/path2/index.cgi>Daily discussion</a> that explains in words the expected distribution of vog concentrations over the Hawaiian Islands as a result of the interaction of the volcanic emissions and the current and forecast weather.</p>
</td>
<td>
EOF
