HTML <center> tag (Not Supported in HTML5)

The HTML <center> is a block level element which contains both block level and inline contents within it. The content written between the <center> elements will be displayed at the middle of the page.

The <center> tag has been deprecated in HTML 4 and obsolete in HTML5.

NOTE: The <center> tag is deprecated now so instead of that you can use CSS property text-align: center; to achieve the same result.
