CSS Tutorial » CSS Table Alignment

To align the contents of a cell in a table we use the text-align property which sets the horizontal alignment (such as left, right or center alignment of the cell) of the content in <th> or <td>.

By default, the contents of the <th> elements in the table are aligned to the center, and the contents of the <td> elements are left-aligned.

To center-align the content of <td> elements as well, use text-align: center:

We can add cell align CSS Style as:
Inline - by using the style attribute in HTML elements
Internal - by using a <style> element in the <head> section
External - by using an external CSS Style file as style.css

Internal CSS and HTML Syntax:

<html>
<style>
th, td { text-align: value; }
</style>
<body>
<table>
<tr>
<th>
title_text</th> <!-- each line one column -->
...
...
...
</tr>
<tr>
<td>content</td>
<!-- each line one column -->
...
...
...
</tr>
</table>

</body>
<html>
Note: use external CSS instead.

CSS Table Align Center

To center a table, set margin-left: auto; and margin-right: auto;.

For a better understanding we present an example:

Example (this is HTML - PHP editor, change text, values on this window)

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
table, th, td {
border: 1px solid black;
border-collapse: collapse;
}

table.center {
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
}
h2 {
color:blue;
text-align: center;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>

<h2>Table Align Center</h2>
<table class="center">
<tr>
<th>ID</th>
<th>Name</th>
<th>Gender</th>
<th>Age</th>
</tr>

<tr>
<td>a1</td>
<td>NickM</td>
<td>M</td>
<td>29</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>a2</td>
<td>SandyB</td>
<td>F</td>
<td>31</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td >a3</td>
<td>StwartW</td>
<td>M</td>
<td>28</td>
</tr>
</table>

</body>
</html>

Note: The table cannot be centered if the width is set in percentage as 100%

Please note that vertical-align only affects inline, inline-block, inline-table, and table cell elements.

}

td {

vertical-align: bottom;
}
h2 {
color:blue;

}
</style>
</head>
<body>
