How do I do this?

In the "olden days", you just said <td align="center"> & everything is center aligned.

If you're using CSS, it'd look like:

    text-align: center;

Open in new window

I'd recommend you add a class to your table, e.g.
<table class="my-table"...</table>

Open in new window


Then you can add a CSS rule to center content in the TD's:

.my-table td {
  text-align: center;

Open in new window

That's exactly what I had; EXCEPT I closed it (accidentally) with ) instead of }.

You got 500 easy points; that part now works.
