    I have multiple pages in a scroll view.

    To wrap the text with in each page I have used the following :

    <div data-role="scrollview" data-content-height="100%" data-pager-overlay="true">
                    <div data-role="page" style="white-space : normal;">
                        <span style="text-align:center;">Privilege Club: Mouawad</span>

    I have used style="white-space : normal;" to wrap the text.

    I saw this as a solution mentioned in one of the very old posts in this forum.

    Please let me know if there is any other or better solution now.

    This works fine but when I try to center align a text with in the span element it is still aligned left

    How can I make it aligned center ?

    I also used width:100% for the span element but invain.

    Could you please help me with this simple task ?

    Note : If I use a div element instead of the span it is working fine.

    Span element is an inline element, so it you would like to expand them by setting width 100%, it is necessary to set display CSS property to inline-block or block. If you set the property to block, it is not necessary to set its width to 100%.

    The other option is to set text-align: center to the parent of the span.
