Catch 22 with float left & center horizontally

Hi. I am using DIVs for lay outs rather than tables but cannot resolve a
catch 22. I need to use the float: left so that I can get DIVs to line up in
rows however, float : left does not respect the text-align : horizontal of
its parent container. Therefore its impossible to center DIVs that you need
to position horizontally. Therefore I cannot see any other way of doing this
other than using tables.

Is there a workaround?

I'm back again, Intro: I've got a floating div (outerDIV) with fixed width that contains an image (IMG) and a div that contains a short text (innerDIV) Problem: In FF, the innerDIV is displaying under the IMG because outerDIV is not wide enough to contain both of them (in some instances). In the instances where the outerDIV is wide, I don't have this problem. IE wraps the text but still keeps it to the right of the IMG. FF doesn't...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
