HTMLTableCellElement: align property

Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

The align property of the HTMLTableCellElement interface is a string indicating how to horizontally align text in the <th> or <td> table cell.

Note: This property is deprecated, and CSS should be used to align text horizontally in a cell. Use the CSS text-align property, which takes precedence, to horizontally align text in a cell instead.


The possible values are:


Align the text to the left. Use text-align: left instead.

Align the text to the right. Use text-align: right instead.


Center the text in the cell. Use text-align: center instead.


Use CSS text-align instead. An example is available on the text-align page.
