A Web designer has to take care of many things while designing a Website. One is how to center the content exactly horizontally and vertically. There are many techniques and some new properties of css3 available by which you can center the content. Following I have gave some example how to center the content with css.

2)Center the content horizontally and vertically

The following css class will put the content horizontally and vertically centered of its parent .The idea is first I set the top and left of content 50% from its parent that will put the top left corner of content at center of its parent and then I will give margin-top and margin-left half of its height and width. That will put the content exactly center.
position: absolute;
