text-align: center; is relative to parent, not "page"

Around 2:30, Guil says' text-align: center;' centers on page, which might be true in this case since the parent is page width, but to be clear, center is relative to parent element. Just a heads up in case anyone else caught that and was confused.

Yeah, nice tip, Brent.

Tex-align is always relative to the parent.
