I find that I want to use align on table cells almost every time I publish a
table on the Web. I haven't felt the need to use <font> or <hr color> for
years. <marquee> never. I think <code> is just a synonym of <tt> in practice.

Even though I haven't used <center> for years myself, I seems to be alive and
well. View source on http://canweshipyet.com/
