By default, text in all table cells are aligned to the left horizontally. If you want to control horizontal alignment yourself, you need to use the "align" attribute in a "tr" element or a "td" element:

  • <tr align="left|center|right"> - Set horizontal alignment to the left, center, or right for all cells in the row.
  • <td align="left|center|right"> - Set horizontal alignment to the left, center, or right for this cell.

Below is a tutorial example of "align" attributes:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html>
 <head>
  <title>Horizontal Alignment</title>
 </head>
 <body>
  <h4>Online Order</h4>
  <table border="1" width="300">
<tr align="right"><td>Description</td><td>Qty</td>
 <td>Price</td></tr>
<tr><td>Email Account</td><td align="right">10</td>
 <td align="right">$9.90</td></tr>
<tr><td>FYIcenter.com Ad</td><td align="right">1</td>
 <td align="right">$99.00</td></tr>
<tr><td>1-year Access</td><td align="right">1</td>
 <td align="right">$199.00</td></tr>
  </table>
 </body>
</html>

If you save the above document as horizontal_alignment.html, and view it with Internet Explorer, you will see that quantity cells and price cells are aligned the right side as shown below:
