Every time I work on a new project I do not have any problems to center the text using "text-align: center" to center the text, but I have never seen a similar code to center images so I always have hack the code by either centering the images in the HTML (not the cleanest option) or by giving the image a variable width (which does not work on multiple resolutions). Is there any way to accomplish this that I have not tried? And, does any one know if something like this will be implemented in CSS3?
