[SOLVED] Having a Div take it's width from it's contents


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

wondering if this is possible and if so how to do it. Basically I've got some text within a div, I want that div to scale to what's inside of it. I tried using display: compact to no avail.


Any thoughts?

The only way to do this is to use the float property. This is ideal if you want the content to go to one side, either left or right. But if you want to center that content, it is impossible since no "float: center;" exists.


A table would work here as a charm, but of course I would never give in to such stupidity.
