HMTL code for indentation

Posted by Sneekersmom (My Page) on

I have found codes to align my text against the left, right or center of the page...

What I want is to CENTER the text on the RIGHT SIDE of the screen. I have a background that has a picture on the left side that I dont want the text to obscure.

THERE HAS TO BE A WAY!!!
doesn't there?

Karen,
Assuming your "picture" is a bordered background,
following this, which is basic for a page:
<./HEAD>

use this code:
<.BODY BACKGROUND="YOUR CHOICE">
<.table width=85% align=right> (change this % to make it fit)
<.tr>
<.td>
<.BR>
<.BR>
<.CENTER><.FONT FACE="" color="" size="">PUT YOUR TEXT HERE<./FONT><./CENTER>
<.BR>
<./tr>
<./td>
<./table>
<./BODY>
<./HTML>

note: The . in each code is so it will show here. Remove them when you use the code on your page.
Breaks, etc. depend on where you want them.
You will also need to check IE and Netscape, etc. to see how it will look and adjust accordingly.
HTH,
Sue

If you want to cheat, you can do it this way:

<.DIR>
your text here
<./DIR>

Add extra DIRs for extra indentations. Not "proper coding" but it works great.
