Default Horizontal Alignment Across Columns

Hi, Richard.

I am working on a complete overhaul of a page and am trying to do it completely without tables. Here is a link to the draft page:

http://www.rocketscientists.ca/rsbeta2.php

What I would like to do now is to horizontally align the two headers "Generic Resources" and "Reference" in columns two and three. The content above these headers included in the "Aerospace Engineering Corner" may change in the future (addition/deletion of links, addition of gifs, etc.), so I am looking for a technique that would have those two headers horizontally aligned, but would not require me to recalculate all positions to the pixel whenever I make a change to the content above (or simply change the font size of existing content). Any suggestions?

Thanks,




DuncanM

Looks like a simple text-align: center; would work on the blocks containing those headings. So just do

<h3 style="text-align: center;">Generic Resources</h3>

HTH!

Regards,
Rich
