Text-align and float
What's the difference between float:left; And text-align: left;
When am I supposed to use float and when text-align??
Steven Parker225,770 Points
Text align operates on the text inside an element, where float affects the position of an element itself and then how text flows around it.
As you begin working on more complex code (with more elements, and different display modes), the difference will become more clear.
