How to align Placeholder Text in HTML?

codeamend

Input Placeholder attribute specifies a short hint to describe the expected value of an input field / textarea. The short hint is displayed in the field before the user enters a value. In most of the browsers, placeholder texts are usually aligned on the left. The selector uses text-align property to set the text alignment in the placeholder.

This selector can change browser to browser. For example:

For Chrome, Mozilla, and Opera Browsers: use ::placeholder

For Internet Explorer: use :-ms-input-placeholder

Example 1: This example describes only placeholder alignment, it does not align placeholder value.

        <style> 

            .body-section{text-align:center;padding: 20px;width: 80%;margin: 0 auto;padding: 20px;background: #ddd;}

            .body-section h1 {color:#5042e0; } 

            .body-section input[type="text"]::placeholder {text-align: left; }

            .body-section input[type="text"]:-ms-input-placeholder {text-align: left; }  

            .body-section input[type="email"]::placeholder { text-align: center;}
