I have a table that I am using for configuring the footer of a webpage.  In the first line of the table data I want to center a company logo.   For the second line I want two flags for the two companies we do business in (centered in the row but beside each other.

When I try it out it seems to just float to the left.

Anyone know what I am doing wrong ,  beloe is example of the logo bit.

<table border='1' cellspacing="0">
                                    <tbody>
                                          <tr>
                                                <td style="text-align:center">
                                                      <img src="/images/logo.png" alt="Footer Logo" border="0" height="18" width="75">
                                                </td>
                                          </tr>
                                          
                                    </tbody>
                              </table>

Try this instead

<td>
  <p style:text-align:center;><img src="/images/logo.png" alt="Footer Logo" border="0" height="18" width="75">
  </p>
</td>

Change your table

<table border='1' cellspacing="0" width="100%">
                                    <tbody>
                                          <tr>
                                                <td style="text-align:center">
                                                      <img src="/images/logo.png" alt="Footer Logo" border="0" height="18" width="75">
                                                </td>
                                          </tr>
                                         
                                    </tbody>
                              </table>

If this is your only thing in your footer, why are you using a table?

If your footer is set with divs just do this

css:
#footer {text-align:center;}

HTML:

<div id="footer>
        <img src="/images/logo.png" alt="Footer Logo" border="0" height="18" width="75">
</div>

The code I gave you works fine.  sample.

 If it is not working in your layout, it is because something else is controlling it.

I tried padding:auto and that centered the logo but when I add the next row with the two flags its messed up again.

Any other suggestions.

It would not be padding auto - if anything it would be margin auto.  However, to center an image you use text-align:center in css.

Here I tried a table in a table like you are probably using and make the footer td of the outer table left align.
 
Using my original code, the image is still centered. Please click this sample to see.  

<table border='1' cellspacing="0" width="100%">
  <tr><td>stuff</td></tr>
  <tr><td align="left">
    <!-- add footer below-->
    <table border='1' cellspacing="0" width="100%">
                                    <tbody>
                                          <tr>
                                                <td class="center" style="text-align:center">
                                                  <img src="" alt="Footer Logo" border="0" height="18" width="75" style="background-color:red">
                                                </td>
                                          </tr>
                                          
                                    </tbody>
                              </table>
    <!-- end footer above-->
   </td></tr>
  
</table>

If this is not working for you, please post a shortened version of your code with  css.

Just post the link and we can look at the whole picture at once instead of trying to peel an onion.

Can you please copy/paste  your html code to http://jsbin.com/aqazut/1/edit.  If you have external css, make sure to copy paste the css into the css area.    

otherwise, just copy paste your entire code here and make sure to include any links to javascript and css.
