In your example, both "width" and "center" are applied to the paragraph or to 
the division block. That means your picture would be centered inside the div 
block if it was narrower than 300 px. As it is wider, the whole div becomes 
larger to contain it, and we cannot see that it is centered as the picture 
fills all the block. (The content inside the block is centered: at the same 
distance from the left and right borders of the block; the outer rectangle of 
the block itself is left-aligned and does not stretch up to the right border o 
the page.)

  %center% %width=300px% Attach:22.jpg %%   -OR-
  %p center% %width=300px% Attach:22.jpg %%

This way the "center" part is applied to the paragraph or division block, and 
the "width" is applied to the picture.
