I concur with David's comments above. Centering content is easily done with
CSS. HTML is supposed to be a presentation-independent, media-independent
language, and thus centering and alignment controls do not belong in the
language. HTML4 started down that road years ago, and the reasons for this have
only become more relevant with time.
