How to center align text in table cells in HTML?

HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

To center align text in table cells, use the CSS property text-align. The <table> tag align attribute was used before, but HTML5 deprecated the attribute. Do not use it. So, use CSS to align text in table cells. The text-align will be used for the <td> tag.

We’re using the style attribute for adding CSS. The style attribute specifies an inline style for an element. The attribute is used with the HTML <td> tag, with the CSS property text-align. HTML5 do not support the align tag,

Just keep in mind, the usage of style attribute overrides any style set globally. It will override any style set in the HTML <style> tag or external style sheet.

For text-align, set the table cell as left, right or center align
