I am trying to center my content in the middle of my page, I can not seem to find a attribute that works. Any help?

John Faught,

If the container element you want to center has a width defined that is less than 100%, the following example will center it:

.wrapper {    
    width: 85%;  
    margin: 0 auto;    
}
