CSS Alignment Help


Recommended Posts

I'm finally moving away from designing layouts with tables however this CSS stuff is rather tricky :lol:

Could someone please help me center align up to 5 div's within another div?

Website example is www.myaudiodirect.com I want those 2 photographs to appear on the same line but align them to the center of the big blue div. I've tried a couple of things and Just can't see to get it right.


html, body, ul, ol, li, p, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, form, fieldset {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
border: 0;
font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
text-align: center;

width: 770px;
margin:10px auto;
border: 1px solid #000000;

height: 300px;
background-image: url(../images/header.jpg);
background-repeat: no-repeat;


background-image: url(../images/background.jpg);
height: 1000px;


height: 200px;
width: 150px;
margin-left: auto; 
margin-right: auto;

overflow: auto;
margin:0 auto;
background-image: url(../images/photo.gif);
background-repeat: no-repeat;

Here is a possible way to do this (Though I will be interested to hear how other people tackle this).

Wrap your photo divs in an div with an ID of photos and then alter your styles to this

#photo {
margin:0 auto;
float: left;
div#photos {
width: 300px;
margin: 0 auto;

The only thing to be aware of is that you will need to alter the width of the div#photos entry if you want to put more than two divs in.
