Default Spry Question

Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible to center a spry menu bar. I have read the "how to center in CSS" tutorial in the tutorials and articles section but if I try and apply the code of the spry it won't work.

Here is the code for the Spry, where would you recommended I place the center CSS code?

Code:

    cursor: default;
    width: auto;
}

On the UL list. But it needs to be centered from the parent element as well, and you didn't post your HTML. What does the rendered source look like?
