HTML question

I am taking an on line HTML tutorial. On my web page that I am making, I am trying to center a graphic. I'm getting it done, but not in the way that I should do it according to the tutorial. Of course, it's possible that I'm am misunderstanding the lesson. According to the instructions, if I want to center the image the code should be: <img align= center src="name of file"> when I do it that way, the image is on the left side. However, if I put: <img <center> src="name of file"></center> it will put the image at the center of the page as I want it. Is there something that I am not understanding?

This may be browser specific issue you are having. Try this code, it should work <img src="name of file" align="center">

This code should also work, and is a correct tag:

<center><img src="name of file"></center>

I tried both and the only one that works is <center>img src="file name"></center>
But here's what seems crazy. After I read your what you said about it passably being a browser issue, I downloaded and installed IE 9 and I still get the same results. I even tried it on my netbook and got the same result. I then thought that maybe there is something with the file itself--possible some sort of code that I put above it that may be causing the problem. So, I made a fresh and simple new HTML file. I got the same results there. So, it's crazy--that tag should work. Thank for your response though.

Hey everyone, I'm having a bit of trouble with a webpage that I'm working on. When viewed in either Chrome or Firefox it loads correctly but when viewed in IE it adds a thin white line at the bottom of the page and therefore adds a scroll bar. I'm fairly new to all this and so far have just been...

HTML question
I have a web page that I made some time ago using HTML 4.1. My page covers the entire width of the screen.
