I don't belive it was fixed with the last patch.  I have not seen it working for quite awhile and I post and center images in our news articles regularly.

-sigh-  Broken again.  Selecting an image in the wysiwyg editor and clicking on the "align center" icon centers the text above the image, which itself remains left justified.  I normally align images center so it's getting annoying to have to constantly edit the html by hand.

Still broken...  If I select an image in this editor and click the toolbar icon "Align Center", one of two things happens:
  1. Nothing
  2. The text above the image centers but not the image itself.
As I've mentioned before, it defeats the purpose the the buttons to have to manually edit the html to center every image.

Alright, here's what I got back from the control vendor (apparently everybody that's using it -- or any other editable iframe -- is having the same problem):

"The problem is Firefox related and it can be reproduced in an editable iframe as well as in our competitors' DHTML based editors. The issue should be fixed by the browser developers, because there isn't an API or CSS provided by Mozilla which we can use to reposition the table handlders,..." 

And so forth. Looks like it's up to FF to fix this one. I'll head over there and toss in a word about it, though I'm sure they already know.

I'm a little confused by all that.  What does "there isn't an API or CSS provided by Mozilla which we can use to reposition the table handlders" mean?

My workaround for this has been to simply use the very basic "center" command to center the image but I have to put it in manually every time.  Why can't the button simply select the image and "center" it?  What is all this "table handlers" mumbo-jumbo?    Gees, simple html still works without all the complicated coding.

Might have something to do with web standards. I'm not sure which version of HTML/XHTML it was, but the CENTER element was listed as "unsupported" by the W3C some time ago. Personally, I think it's ridiculous, and since all browsers still continue to render it properly, I still use it in some places with GP...

Aaron, it sounds like BS from your control vendor.  They are just passing the buck.

OK, say that they want to conform to only the newest standards.  I just tried the center button with IE, rather than Firefox.  It worked, inserting the following code prior to the image code:

<p style="text-align: center;">

I took the same code and manually inserted it prior to the image code in Firefox and it worked just fine.  Are we really to believe that the control vendor can't insert the same code prior to an image in Firefox that it can in IE?

I don't buy it and you shouldn't either.  Please stay on them about this and don't let them pass the buck.
