Obsolete
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

The obsolete HTML Center Element (<center>) is a block-level element that displays its block-level or inline contents centered horizontally within its containing element. The container is usually, but isn't required to be, <body>.

This tag has been deprecated in HTML 4 (and XHTML 1) in favor of the CSS text-align property, which can be applied to the <div> element or to an individual <p>. For centering blocks, use other CSS properties like margin-left and margin-right and set them to auto (or set margin to 0 auto).

DOM interface

This element implements the HTMLElement interface.

Implementation note: up to Gecko 1.9.2 inclusive, Firefox implements the HTMLSpanElement interface for this element.

Example 1

<center>This text will be centered.
<p>So will this paragraph.</p></center>

Example 2 (CSS alternative)

<div style="text-align:center">This text will be centered.
<p>So will this paragraph.</p></div>

Example 3 (CSS alternative)

<p style="text-align:center">This line will be centered.<br>
And so will this line.</p>

Note

Applying text-align:center to a <div> or <p> element centers the contents of those elements while leaving their overall dimensions unchanged.
