my intention is to make a DIV the same as I do with this table:

<Table style = "background-color: # AFEEEE;
margin: 0 auto 0 auto;
border-width: medium; border-style: outset; ">
<td align="center"">
Form 1
</ Td>
</ Tr>
</ Table>

So I need a box, centered, and that also suits the content, I do not want to put width, I want to automatically take the size of the text you have inside. I managed latter putting display: inline, but if I put that I cannot focus box.

Any idea?

You can try:
<div style="text-align: center;" >
  <div style="display:inline-block; text-align: left;">
	  <!-- hopefully centered -->

For me I think using table is absolutely ok ... don't listen to people that have to always convert "table" to "div". With the fast browser now aday ... u won't notice any different between the table vs div. I 've found that using table works perfectly across the browser vs div. (well at least it's my opinion :) )
