Problem encountered editing Wikipedia December 12, 2012.
- Given a titled gallery with a captioned image (single image file in my problem case)
- The gallery is centered by bracketing with <center> and </center>
This results in the captioning text to also be centered (this is not unexpected).
- Attempt to uncenter the captioning by bracketing the caption text with </center> and <center>
This results in the caption text appearing fully left justified using the page boundary rather than the gallery image box outer boundary.
WORK AROUND (for this specific single image case):
A.) Close the gallery with </gallery>after the gallery image title
B.) Display the image file as a "thumb" of the appropriate width using the "centered" option. (This will not center the text, but note that the text may be centered explicitly by bracketing with <center> </center>)
ALTERNATE WORK-AROUND (Also only for single image case):
After closing the gallery Display the image file as a "wide image", these are automatically centered and default to left justified text.
ADDITIONAL TESTS NOT PERFORMED:
No attempt was made to check the case of multiple images with uncentered text, this should be part of the post-fix testing.
