Centering the logo within the .banner class

I cannot figure out why the logo will not center on the page after setting the text-align property to "center". The .headline and .tagline both respond (and center), but the logo stays in place.

I can achieve the result by setting the .logo margin to auto, but I'm just wondering why text-align isn't working.

I think I figured it out. I still have a rule that set the display of all three classes (.headline, .tagline, .logo) to block.

Thanks Poul! I was just thinking while typing out the question where I could get the original files to compare. I completely forgot about the .zip file under the downloads tab.
