Text Alignment

Syntax: text-align: <value>
Possible Values: left | right | center | justify
Initial Value: Determined by browser
Applies to: Block-level elements
Inherited: Yes

The text-align property can be applied to block-level elements (P, H1, etc.) to give the alignment of the element's text. This property is similar in function to HTML's ALIGN attribute on paragraphs, headings, and divisions.

Some examples follow:

H1          { text-align: center }
P.newspaper { text-align: justify }
