Setting Text Alignment using CSS

CSSWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

We can align the text in html documents using CSS text-align property for horizontal alignment and CSS padding-top with CSS padding-bottom, or CSS line-height for vertical alignment.

Syntax

Following are the syntax for above mentioned CSS properties −

Selector {
   text-align: center | left | right | justify | inherit | initial;
}
Selector {
   padding: /*value*/;
}
Selector {
   line-height: /*value*/;
}

Let’s see an example to align text horizontally −

Example

 Live Demo

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>CSS Text Alignment</title>
<style>
.screen {
   padding: 10px;
   width: 70%;
   margin: 0 auto;
   background-color: #f06d06;
   text-align: center;
   color: white;
   border-radius: 0 0 50px 50px;
   border: 4px solid #000;
}
.seats span{
   margin: 10px;
   padding: 10px;
   color: white;
   border: 4px solid #000;
   width: 120px;
   display: inline-block;
   background-color: #48C9B0;
}
.left{
   text-align: left;
}
.right{
   text-align: right;
}
.center{
   text-align: center;
}
.seats{
   text-align: center;
}
</style></head>
<body>
<div class="screen">Screen</div>
<div class="seats">
<span class="left">Adam</span>
<span class="center">Martha</span>
<span class="right">Samantha</span>
</div>
</body>
