HTML Align Center

Styling the content on a web page plays an important role, as it makes the web page attractive and captures the attention of the users. It is very common to align the text in the center.

In HTML, the text can be aligned to the center with the help of the "align" attribute and by using the < center> tag. The "align" attribute and the <center> tag were supported in earlier versions of HTML.

NOTE: The "align" attribute and the <center> tag are no longer supported in HTML5 in order to favor CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for styling web pages. It is recommended to use the "text-align" property of CSS to align text to the center instead of the HTML "align" attribute and the <center> tag.

HTML <Center> Tag

This tag specifies the center alignment of the text, so you can use the < center> tag to control the alignment of different elements.

Syntax:

The syntax shown above includes the <center> opening tag & </center> closing tag, and the content is written between the opening tag and the closing tag, which will be center-aligned.

Examples of Aligning Text to Center in HTML using < center> Tag

In this example, we have aligned the text written in <h1> and <p> tag using < center> tag.

Output:

As you can see in the output below, the text inside the <h1> and <p> tags is aligned to the center.

"Align" Attribute

In HTML, the "align" attribute is used to align text in the center, left, or right on the web page. You can implement this attribute by writing it inside the opening HTML tag.

Syntax:

  1. In the above syntax, <tag> is an HTML element on which the "align" attribute is applied.
  2. The content comes inside opening <tag> and closing </tag>.
  3. The "align" attribute in the syntax above has four possible values: center, left, right, and justify.
    • align="center": It is used to align the text to the center.
    • align="left": It is used to align the text to the left.
    • align="right": It is used to align the text to the right.
    • align="justify": It is used to adjust the text equally between the left and right edges of the element.
