This is a text panel with percentage width/height that is centered within an outer container using margin:auto;


A simple method of vertical and horizontal centering anything using just margin:auto;

This can include text, images, forms etc.

The centered content can be sized in pixels, ems or percentage and can also be responsive if the outer container is resized.
