#div {
text-align:center;
padding: 10px;
}

Open in new window


you can do it with other tags but make sure they are the same size as your div in order to find a true center.

For Example:
#mydiv {
width:300px;
height:300px;
text-align: center;
border:dashed;
}
#p {
width: 280px;
padding: 0 10px 0 10px;
}

Open in new window

<div id="mydiv"><p>this is your centered text</p></div>

Open in new window

Here is a jfiddle example of it.
