Help centering blockquotes in Footer

Hello Experts,

I have the following HTML Markup and CSS below for my Footer. I'm having a problem centering the contents of the <blockquote> at the bottom of my page along with the contents of the lblquoteauther Label Control.

Contents of the <Label> Controls are getting retrieved from the Database.

HTML Markup:

        <div id="footer">
            <blockquote>
                <asp:Label ID="lblquote" runat="server"></asp:Label>
            </blockquote>
            <br />
            <asp:Label ID="lblquoteauthor" CssClass="lblauthor" runat="server"></asp:Label>
        </div>

CSS:

#footer
{
    clear: both;
    padding-top: 10px;
}

#footer blockquote
{
    width: 880px;
    font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;
    font-size: 15px;
    color: #c2a863;
    margin: 0px;
    margin-left: 35px;
    padding-top: 20px;
    quotes: "\201C" "\201D";
    text-align: center;
}
 
#footer blockquote:before
{
    font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;
    font-size: 15px;
    content: open-quote;
    font-weight: bold;
}
 
#footer blockquote:after
 {
    font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;
    font-size: 15px;
    content: close-quote;
    font-weight: bold;
}

.lblauthor
{
    font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;
    font-size: 13px;
    color: #c2a863;
    text-align: center;
    margin-left: 200px;
}

Try giving the blockquote a width less than the width of #footer then use margin: 0 auto; on the blockquote, rather than text-align: center;

Hi i-CONICA,

That worked very well with the <blockquote>. But also need the <label> control that is not included in the <blockquote> to do the same.

Hi,

I don't know ASP so don't know what that code outputs to the browser, but it must be some HTML. If it's just <label> then you could use the same, but with display:block; too.

#footer label{
display:block;
width:200px;
margin:0 auto;
}

Hi i-CONICA,

What worked but with a little issue. I had to use a width of 600 because of how long the author of the quotes are. But, by changing the width it does not appear to be centered it appears that it favors the left more meaning that the author info seems to go more towards the left rather than centering accordingly.
