Unable to align text

4
Hi All
This may seem like a stupid question but I can't get my text to left align. It used to but it's now decided to centre and I can't see why.

I have include the css and the relevant table code. If one of you can spot the problem I would appreciate it.

The table "top info box" is within the table "main".

The page can be seen at it's temporary home here. http://mariehines.co.uk/NEW/home.php

Regards
Ray

In one of your stylesheets you have 'body p {text-align:center}'

Thank you for your reply.

However, I cannot find this code. Could you be more specific.

It's not in what you posted, it's in your link in the HTML.

Wow! great spot. That was in the footer.

How did that have an effect on the main code?

'body p' means all p that's a descendant of body. That's the "cascading" part of CSS. It doesn't matter where you declare it but <style> belongs in the <head>.

Thanks again dr. The css in the footer is only temporary until the contents have been decided. All css will eventually be in one file.

Thanks for the explanation, it's appreciated.
