The center tag pretty much explains itself! The opening center tag is <center> and the closing center tag is </center>. Whatever you put between will be centered on the current line!
Example of CENTER tag...
Note: Recently, the W3C (the group that decides on HTML standards) has recommended that when writing HTML, you use <div align="center">centered text</div> instead of the center tag. Although div does not work in many older web browsers, it works in virtually all recent versions of popular web browsers. The neat thing about div is that you can align both left and right in addition to center.
In Chapter 1 you learned the BODY tag. The BODY tag has many attributes... here are the most useful ones...
If you are looking for special effects such as links without an underline, or links that change color when you move the mouse over them, you need to use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) with your HTML code.
In the Box below, type the following HTML code, then click "Check it Out!" The HTML document you made will be displayed in your browser. You may wish to change the words within the tags and the tag attributes just to try it out.
Try typing this:
<head><title>Title goes here</title></head>
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" link="#FF0000" vlink="#00FF00">
<h1 align=right>Body goes here</h1>
<center><h2>Headings are very useful!</h2></center>
<div align="right">div is also a great tag!</div>
