So a method of centering based on using a certain known width of the box is not going to work. And as an extra to the task there is a desirable condition: the title or pagination box has to be centered once and for all at the time of the box creation, so that this group of floated elements may be reused without any extra work over it: just place the complex where you need it and put the text or / and images you want to inside it - the group is centered anyway. This problem can be solved by several methods using several technologies: CSS, CSS + JavaScript, CSS + HTML (<table></table> tags system).
