    Need another set of eyes

    I have looked at this till I am blue in the face....why is my UL list CENTERED? I want it aligned to left margin...

    <center>HOME IS THE HUNTER....</center>

    <p>‘Tis now the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, and what better supper to come home to after a bitterly cold day’s treasure hunting than a tasty,
    filling stew. So, what to serve the returning ravenous hunter? Two fingers of Scotch (vertical not horizontal) is a good starter and very popular at Chez Howland,
    though the Memsahib looks on slightly askance! Though this rip-roarer of a stew is both easy and simple to prepare, it’s unpretentiously succulent. Yum!</p>

    <center>SLOW-COOKED BEEF IN RED WINE</center>
    <br>

    <p><u>You’re gonna need:-</u></p>

    <ul>
    <li>150 grams (smoked) bacon, chopped</li>
    <li>2 Tablespoons of sunflower oil</li>
    <li>900 grams of braising steak (rump is great) cut into 4cm cubes</li>
    <li>10 small shallots, peeled</li>
    <li>12 baby carrots (tinned will do if added near the end of cooking)</li>
    <li>1 Tablespoon of cornflour (to thicken)</li>
    <li>300ml of red wine (A Californian Merlot is ideal)</li>
    <li>300ml of beef stock</li>
    <li>100g button mushrooms (A can of whole button mushrooms is ok)</li>
    <li>1 teaspoon of Herbs de Provence</li>
    <li>1 clove of garlic, crushed</li>
    <li>A good handful of chopped parsley</li>
    </ul>


    <p>How To/p>

    <ol>
    <li>Heat the oven to 160C/Gas mark 3.</li>
    <li>Fry the chopped bacon over a medium heat with 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil for a couple of minutes, then transfer to the casserole dish.</li>
    <li>Using the same pan, fry the cubed steak in batches to brown it. Transfer each batch to the casserole dish.</li>
    <li>Lower the heat and fry the shallots until golden. Add the baby carrots and cook for a couple of minutes, then transfer shallots and carrots to the casserole dish.</li>
    <li>Sprinkle the flour over the contents of the casserole dish, pour in the wine and beef stock and crushed garlic clove.</li>
    <li>Finally, add the button mushroom and the Herbs de Provence. If using tinned button mushrooms, add these twenty minutes before the end of cooking.</li>
    <li>Cover the casserole dish and cook in the oven for at least TWO hours. Once cooked, sprinkle over the chopped parsley.</li>
    </ol>


    <center>Serve with boiled potatoes and vegetable of your choice, and crusty French-style bread....</center>

    I can't spot anything there that could be causing it. Do you have a link to the actual page?

    Sorry, finally found it ...

    Had the following listed:\

    ul {
    list-style-type: none;
    text-align: center;
    line-height: 1.5em;
    }

    Just didn't look long enough and hard enough....thanks for trying to help. You are appreciated.
