Syntax

align=" { left | center | right | justify } "

Description

The align attribute affects the text content inside the h1, aligning it to the "left", "right", or "center", or setting it to "justify" on the page.

This attribute is deprecated, so the correct method for aligning an h1 is to use the CSS text-align property.

Example

The h1 below, identified as a "site-splash-page", will right-align the content inside the h1 (but as it’s identified with the id attribute, CSS could—and should—be used to set the alignment):

<h1 id="site-splash-page" align="right">Our amazing range
    of services</h1>

Value

The accepted values for h1 are "left", "right", "center", and "justify".
