CSS

Some wrappers won't center its content

When I am centering content I am using the div with the class "wrap". My header content will center, but the div within the section won't.

<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">

Links (a) are inline elements by default, but you can make them be block elements and then apply text centering.

.gallery a {
  display: block;
  text-align: center;
}
