    Center name?

    I don't manage to get my name (Eduard Lid) centered on my website (www.eduardlid.net) (I use browser Google Chrome!)
    Who knows why?

    Try putting it in a DIV.

    HTML Code:
    <html>
     <head>
      <style type="text/css">
      div.ctr {text-align:center}
      </style>
     </head>
     <body>
      <div class="ctr">My Name</div>
     </body>
    </html>

    Center name?

    I´ve tried that, but it doesn´t work! Therefore I assume it´s because I use Google Chrome (I googled that!)

    Add this:
    HTML Code:
    display: inline-block;

    Another way:
    HTML Code:
    div.ctr {
        margin-left: auto;
        margin-right: auto;
        width: 200px; /* Your width */
    }
