Hi , image gallery is not in center of the page.

Hi , i am facing this problem every time with my coding . The problem is - alignment of header and footer's text or image always in center of the page with property text-align .But , alignment of image gallery is not in the center of the page.Its slight left or right side depend on the size of the page. If i use wrapper to warp all code with text align property then the same problem what is wrong with this coding below -

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>---------</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="main.css">

</head>
<body>
    <nav>
        <ul id="mainMenu">
            <li><a href="#">------------</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">------------</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">------------</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">------------</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">------------</a></li>
        </ul>
    </nav>
    <header>
        <h2 id="mainHeading">------------</h2>
        <!-- <h2 id="wild"><a href="#">------------</a></h2> -->
    </header>
        <ul id="gallery">
            <li><img src="img/------------.jpg"></li>
            <li><img src="img/T------------.jpg"></li>
            <li><img src="img/------------.jpg"></li>
            <li><img src="img/------------.jpg"></li>
        </ul>

    <footer>
        <a href="https://------------        " target="_blank"><img src="img/facebook-wrap.png" class="icon"></a>
        <a href="https://------------  " target="_blank"><img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" class="icon"></a>
        <P>------------ . </P>
    </footer>

</body>

Your #gallery is floated left. This takes your gallery out of the usual layout of the page and glues it to the left side.

Add the property "margin: auto" to your "nav ul" selector.
