Centered content in Hotmail/Firefox

I am trying to get my email to center in the window and I have it working fine in everything except Hotmail on Firefox. I have added the .ReadMsgBody { width: 100% !important;}
 .ExternalClass {width: 100% !important;} hacks and they correct the problem in Hotmail/IE but not in Firefox. Has anybody found a solution to this that works in Firefox.

Thanks

Ok, answered my own question with more trial and error. Seems that the "!important" needed to be removed from the two hacks and then to get it to display in Firefox, I needed to add a width="100%" tag to the <td> of the container table. Voila.

Hope this helps someone else

Well, it looks like Microsoft updated Hotmail and now the problem has re-appeared. Has anyone else had any luck getting emails to center in Hotmail's window? This now occurs in Firefox and IE.

Hey machadodesign, do you have a screenshot and some code that you can share with us? We're continuing to be able to center our campaigns in Hotmail, so it may be something specific to the campaign itself. Sorry for the delay in responding here!
