IFrame align="center" in Netscape and Firefox

P: n/a
Hi!

I'm trying to set the align property/attribute of an IFrame to center
but its not working (see below). Can anyone please tell me what's going
on, and if there's a work around for this?

Thanks,

- Olumide

Use CSS, along with a proper doctype:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"
/>
<title>test</title>
<style type="text/css">

body {
text-align: center;
}
#foo {
display: block;
width: 620px;
height: 500px;
margin: 0 auto;
}

</style>
</head>
<body>
<iframe id="foo" src="sampleContent.htm"></iframe>
</body>
</html>

The body rule is for ie5win:
