Center header text

Hi, I'm using the MTS Journey theme and in header.php is the following programming....ps I'm a newbie to Wordpress/PHP

<div id="containerl">
  <div id="header"><h1><a name="topp"  title="topp"  id="topp"></a><a href="<?php echo get_settings('home'); ?>/" title="<?php _e('Go to','mtsjourney'); ?> <?php bloginfo('name'); ?> <?php _e('Homepage','mtsjourney'); ?>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1></div>
<div id="wrapper">
<div id="content">

It displays the name of the blog, which is my case is 13 characters and it appears to be centered. I was mucking around as I want to place the blog description there. I got that to work but is several works and it's not centered. I put things back to how they were, made the blog name longer and found that it's also not centered. I've tried putting in 'text-align: center' in several places but it won't centre.

How can this be done?


RE: Center header text

I found in style.css was the following programming....

div#containerl {
    max-width: 1200px;
    width: 97%;
    margin: 0 auto;
    text-align: center;
    border: 3px double #688f9e;
    color: #151515;
    background-color: #fff;

and although 'text-align; center;' was there it just wasn't working for some reason. I deleted and re-entered it then save it and it's centered.
