I stand stymied. Here is what I have tried. It looks good on the Sigil page, but not on my iPtouch.

<body>
<h1 class="sgc-1" id="heading_id_2">This Front</h1>

<p class="center sgc-1 sgc-4"><img alt="" src="../Images/Infinite%20Life.jpg" /><br /></p>

I really need it spelt out like what you see above. xhtml may be obvious to ye poets of the xhtml either, but I am planet bound.

sgc-4 or -1 doesn’t seem effective as I wish. I tried all suggestions (the "center" command I thought nice and obvious), so, nicely Sigil ‘fixes’ or does what it does to not blow up changing or fixing the strange language to what it wants.

In my real ebook that works, I used spaces to centre the image and author successfully, but what a bothersome work-round.

Like why does the header nicely centre. I tried copy-paste its?placement parameters. Ha! To the left she jumps.

Doesn’t seem to me that this should be rocket science. Wife says “Do dishes” and I do the dishes. Why won’t Sigil be so compliant. Must be a lady of her own mind.

Namaste,

I've just had a sudden enlightenment, an Eureka moment.
What if Sigil provided a template; a simple .epub with a Title page including a centred image and author and other neat stuff; An introductory Chapter or Part with a nice centred Heading. Nothing simple. Just the bare working essentials. Then one could open the template, view its structure, exchange their own image, author etc and commence with the rest of their work? I shall Post the Sigil Professor immediately. Life is so simple in my universe; sometimes.
