I have a form and this one section that I attached is bothering me. I have an imagebutton and I am trying to center the lable and button that are in a <td> next to the imagebutton. Look at the pic attached and even though the lable and button are centered, I need it centered as if the image button wasnt there. My code is below and I am kinda new to HTML and designing these pages so go easy on me. Again, I need the label and button in the middle of the entire row and not in the middle of the row after the width of the imagebutton is taken into account. I was thinking the imagebuttons width is 120px so if I could center the lable and button and then minus the 120 that would work but like I said Im new and dont know how to do it...Anyway, heres my code and I have attached a pic...Thanks all

Markup code...
         
  <asp:Panel ID="Panel16" runat="server" HorizontalAlign="Center" Width="973px">

I'm not a .NET Dev but it seems like you really  need front end help.  See if this sample helps you out.  You really just need to give the td you want centered a style, "text-align:center"

I have made a table and outlined the table in red and td's in black for show.

http://jsbin.com/baxup/1/edit
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <style>
  table{
    width:600px;
    border:solid red;
  }
  td {border:solid thin;}
  td.foo{
    text-align:center;
    
  }
  </style>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>Padas</title>
</head>
<body>
<table>
  <tr><td>First Row</td></tr>
  <tr><td class="foo">Item 1<br>Item 2</td></tr>
</body>
</html>

that would work but I have too much going on with the page to insert another row. It wont look right. I want to have it in the same <tr> but centered. I was thinking if I could maybe do a colspan  of maybe 11 for instance and have the imagebutton in the 1st col and then find where the middle of the colspan would be(im thinking 6) and put my label and button there. Any thoughts?
