center content in footer

Dear fellow students,

I have the following question: Currently I am trying to build my own first website, but I cannot seem to get the footer content centered. Here is my code for my footer. What's the CSS I should use?

<footer class="main-footer">

    <a href="https://www.facebook.com/Awearness-1883816761894408/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel">
      <img src="C:\Users\User\Documents\Awearness-img\fblogoawearness.jpg" alt="" class="social-icon">
    <a href="https://www.instagram.com/awearness.nu/">
      <img src="C:\Users\User\Documents\Awearness-img\instalogoawearness.jpg" alt="" class="social-icon">


Also I sometimes get strange low indents in between my social icons.

Looking forward to a reply!

Hi Caspar,

You need to select the footer element with CSS and use the property that aligns text content of an element. Remember with CSS text content refers to any content that lives inside a containing element. Remember to give your element a fluid width that matches the rest of your styles :)

Thanks for the answer Jonathan! But I still have the following problem. When I use the align context element, I get the following (X is content, in this case an image).


There appear low indent marks. Why is this? Looking forward to your answer.
