Hi there,

I have recently been wanting to 'try' and refine a html document to conform
to W3C's Recommendations. However in my effort to do so I have found that
the TABLE HEIGHT attribute is an invalid specification or a rather
deprecated as of some HTML version (3?).

That might be all well and good but what is the alternative solution if for
example one wanted to center an image in the middle of page? Having
(moderately) searched the W3C site I cannot find anything that justifies
this back-step or deprecation. In my experience when one specifies a
deprecated element they are also given notification of the 'to be' accepted
alternative.

It would also be nice to see a couple of links on your site to the actual
(current) mark up specifications used by common browsers i.e. IE and
Navigator (If they themselves make this information available). Thus one
would be enable one to perform a thorough investigation and possibly
moreover solidify the reasoning behind W3C's Recommendations (Especially if
W3C is to be considered as an official HTML guide).

Thanks.
