Aligning Text

The way text appears on a page is important to both readability and esthetics. Alignment— also known as justification— describes how the text is positioned both in relation to itself, and in relation to other objects on a page. Alignment plays a large role in the way text looks, determining where and how that text is placed.

The problem for Web designers who want to use XHTML is that alignment is the domain of style sheets, and in the strictest XHTML interpretations, must be relegated to them. However, alignment can be used properly in XHTML if you're writing transitional documents. Because alignment is pretty common for current Web developers,and style sheets are not completely ready for all markets, I'm including this information for your use. Just keep in mind that all documents with the forms of alignment described here must conform to the XHTML transitional DTD.
