In HTML center text can be done using the HTML Center Tag. In other words we can say that whenever we want to align center any text in HTML we can use the HTML Center tag.
The HTML Center Tag is not supported in HTML 5 and is deprecated in HTML 4.0.1 hence we have to use CSS to HTML Center Text in any resource or webpage to align text at the center.
Syntax for HTML Center Text Tag
