    The simplest way is to add...

    <center>

    **page code**

    </center>

    ....at either end of the html doc

    Really you need to be doing it with CSS not using <center> tags. <center> tags are deprecated, meaning they aren't in the the HTML standard anymore. Browsers still render them properly but there is no guarantee they will forever.

    A better way to centre the page is to use margins. If you put a <div> around everything you want to centre, give it an id of wrapper and then style it in your css.

    Example:

    HTML:
    HTML:
    <div id="wrapper">
      The rest of your site code goes in here.
    </div>
    
    CSS:
    Code:
    #wrapper {
      width: 780px;
      margin: 0 auto;
    }

    I understand that they are deprecated but it still remains the easiest way to center an entire site for the time being.

    Your way is obviously much better :icon_thumbup:
