    div not centered

    I am trying to center a div. Here is my code for it:
    Code:
    #rect {
        border: 2px solid #a1a1a1;
        padding: 10px; 
        background: #dddddd;
        border-radius: 1px;
    	font-size:24px;
    	display:inline-block;
    	margin-right:auto;
    	margin-left:auto;
    }
    and
    Code:
    <div id="rect" style="text-align:center; margin-right:auto; margin-left:auto;"><? echo $code; ?></div>
    Any ideas on why it won't center, and how to fix this?

    You need to give that div a width, something less than 100%, to see any effect from auto margins.

    Simple give width in css for example width:900px; so that margin auto can work there.

    I tried adding a width, but it seems to have no effect.

    What width did you set? How wide is the div's parent? You are not providing enough information for us to debug it.

    I have tried both a percentage and px. (50% and 200px).

    Get rid of the display:inline-block; css, that's forcing it to the left.

    yup, auto-margins do jack on inline-block elements.

    Though you've got a perfectly good id, why the inlined STYLE attribute?

    Thanks- this worked!

    I used this because I had an issue, and it fixed it, but I guess I don't need it anymore.
