Styling the Caption

The next step is to apply some basic styles to the caption text, starting with color.

There are many ways that the color white can be specified, including white, #fff, #ffffff, rgb(255,255,255), and rgb(100%,100%,100%). In this case, the three-digit hexadecimal option will be usedcolor: #fff.

Text can be aligned to the left, right, center, or justify. This caption will be centered using text-align: center as shown in Listing 11.5. The results can be seen in Figure 11.4.
