Are you talking vertical or horizontal?

If you want to center it the way the <center> tag did

add this to your css element

.element {
      text-align:center;
}

if on the other hand you are wanting to have it in the middle of the screen vertically, thats a bit more tricky. You will need to play with the padding and margins to get it to do right. and that wont neccessarily solve it in all browsers

Wow, false alarm the picture wasn't working. With the page I am working with, here is my style sheet:

body.index {
    background: #3B6AA0 url('/waisanen13/cowboy_shooting_one_gun_md_wht_15037.gif') no-repeat
}

span.header1 {
    letter-spacing: 4px;
    font-size: 50;
    font-weight: bold
}

span.navigation {
    color: 663300;
    font-size: 30
}

a:link {
    color: navy;
    text-decoration: underline overline
}

a:visited {
    color: navy
}

a:hover {
    color: blue;
    text-decoration: underline overline
}

a:active {
    color: navy
}

a:link.navigation {
    color: navy;
    text-decoration: overline;
    font-size: 24
}

a:visited.navigation {
    color: navy;
    font-size: 24
}

a:hover.navigation {
    color: blue;
    text-decoration: underline overline;
    font-size: 24
}

a:active.navigation {
    color: navy;
    font-size: 24
}

iframe.indexbox {
    width: 100%;
    height: 700px
}

body.sub {
    background: #3B6AA0
}

img {
    background-color: #3B6AA0
}

span.updatetitle {
    color: navy;
    font-size: 30
}

span.update {
    color: navy;
    font-size: 14
}

hr.break {
    visibility: hidden;
}

sup.new {
    color: red
}

span.ticker {
    color: #E31230;
    text-decoration: underline
}

span.header5 {
    font-size: 20;
    font-weight: bold
}

span.gamefoot {
    color: navy;
    font-size: 18;
}

span.gamehead {
    color: navy;
    font-size: 23;
    letter-spacing: 5px;
    font-weight: bold;
    text-decoration: underline overline
}

img.car {
    height: 400;
}

div#car {
    text-align: center;
}

p.song {
    text-align: center;
    color: blue;
    font-size: 18
}

embed.hgame {
    height = 400
}

embed.pgame {
    height = 500
}

div#game {
    text-align: center;
}

The class of the picture is car.

I'm getting server errors in both places. Put text-align: center for the element containing the image, and that should be correct. In being rendered by a browser, an image is more or less equivalent to a single character, except that it has a different size than most characters, line breaking behavior is a bit different around images than characters, and the browser's bugs might be different.

text-align affects the alignment of the text contained by an element, not the alignment of an element itself.

OK so I played around a bit and noticed you didnt have a div at all. So I did this. I also killed somee of your code Ill paste from img.car down

img.car {
height: 400;
}
#main {
width:100%;
text-align:center;
}

And I added the content of your source inside a div

<body class=sub>
<div id ="main">
<img src=http://www.freewebs.com/waisanen14/Picscarcrash/car.jpg class="car">
</div>
<!-- --><script type="text/javascript" src="/i.js"></script></body>

It centers it for me.

What do you mean? What I gave you was a div with an id I didnt have any span nor class.

excuse me, I used a div instead of a span, and a id instead of a class. Just had a brain fart.

why dont u just put it inside:
div.pictureArea{position:relative; margin-left:auto; margin-right:auto;}

So, then it would center WHEREVER you put it. and you also wouldnt have to worry about heights.
