OK...I need some help with this one!
I can get the stuff on the web page to center execpt the tables on the page.

The tables have set lenghts for columns so I can format things on the page.
For example...I have a table that one row each column have different widths (column 1 may be 200px, the next column 2 may be 800px) but ALL my tables on the page add up to a total width of 1000 no matter what the column widths may be.

I have a master page and I was hoping that I might that I could just put the <div "style=text-align: center"> and I would be good to go...execpt as I mentioned works fine for things that are NOT tables.

<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div style="width: 1000px;>
        <br />
        <table summary="" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" style="width: 1000px; height: 96px;">
        <tr>
            <td colspan="1" style="width: 385px; height: 76px;" align="left">
                <img alt='' src="Images/Background.gif" height="72px" width="360px"/>
            </td>
            <td colspan="2" style="width: 615px; height: 76px;" align="center">
                <font face="Tahoma" color="black" size="6"><b>Ticket Reporting</b></font><br />
                <font face="Tahoma" color="black" size="5"><b>Customer Care</b></font></td>
        </tr>
        </table>

Thank you both for your quick responses.
This was driving me insane yesterday and I'm glad to finally put it behind me.
