Hi guys,

I'm using JSF, in IE7 I'm using the tag <div style="text-align: center;"> and the output is fine, however in FF2 only 'pure text' [i.e. text with no border etc..] is centered, anything else seems to be ignore..

Any pointers on how I could tackle this?

Thanks in advance

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your input.

Your solution worked. Interesting thing.. when I updated my CSS I put the code for IE7 first, then FF2, it worked fine for FF2 but woulldnt work for IE7, I changed it around - and everything seemed to slot into place.

Any idea why?

Thanks

Well, guys, I think I spoke too soon.

my code is

Whichever browser comes second, works fine - so in the code above, FireFox works, and IE7 doesn't.

What can I do to fix this?

Regards

HMMM...put this second

_text-align: center;

I do not like that...might work. Try looking around the net. with the moz line in a search. You might be bale to turn something up. I am too busy today to investigate it.
