hi,

is it possible to do this somehow in CSS:

#bla{
width: 500px;
}

.center-of-bla{
margin-left: #bla.width/2; //pseudo-code
}

thank you.

one question more i forgot to ask:

is it possible to put the align flag of <div align="center> into as CSS statement so it is possible to just write <div class="align-center">?
or is it impossible to outsource attributes of the <div>-tag?

thanks again.

Well you can search google for "CSS expression" and you can see how IE would allow you to do it.

and I think you are looking for text-align: center;
