How to Center a DIV

A DIV is a block element which means that it contains an embedded carriage return before and another embedded carriage return after it is rendered on your webpage. Therefore it delineates a horizontal section or division all the way across it's containing element, which my be the browser window. However, if you specify a width for a div, it may display less wide than it's containing element, in which case you may want to center it.

One way to center a div is to place it within HTML <center></center> tags. This tag dates back to HTML version 1, but is now deprecated, which means it's not guaranteed to work all browsers. However, it still works in all important browsers today and deprecated tags are rarely removed to avoid breaking older websites.

The current proper way to center a div is to use CSS to set both its margin-left and margin-right properties to auto. The code for this is shown below.

<div style="width:200px; height:200px; margin-left:auto; margin-right:auto;"></div>
