81. Unfortunately, that is no longer possible.

The Admins disabled a lot of the allowed user html tags after the hack in 2016 to address security concerns.

The best we can probably do currently is to use the [blockquote] tag to indent something.

Indented with blockquote.

Or possibly multiple wide spaces (   ) to indent short phrases (although that may end up looking weird on the mobile view if the line wraps around).

    Indented with spaces.

I would suggest lobbying the Admins to add a [center] tag in future updates. Perhaps a thread could be started here to get ideas from DUers and then we can point the Admins to the discussion.

... we think it would be nice to give DU a fresh coat of paint. The current design has served us well for the past 10 years, but it is starting to show its age. This won't be a massive, total rewrite of the software, which we did when we moved from DU2 to DU3, but will be more focused on quality-of-life improvements to the site -- better navigation, easier to read, faster loading, a better mobile version, etc. We might even be able to sneak in some new features while we're at it. And don't worry, this isn't some kind of sell-out -- it will still be the DU you know and love, only even more awesome.

Again, we'll have plenty of discussions with you about it before we get there -- and this is something that will take quite some time to pull off so don't expect to see DU4 any time soon. But I wanted to let you know what we had in mind going forward.
