Subject: HTML layout features

regarding layout- features of HTML, specifically the netscape extensions:

<img hspace>
as the <hspace> is effective for left and right it is difficult to control
the alignment of images vertically.
i'd propose to differenciate between:
<img leftspace> and
<img rightspace>

<table cellspacing>
i understand that <cellspacing> applies not only between rows of cells but
as well left/ right/ top/ bottom of each cell.
again i'd like to propose to differenciate between 

<hcellspacing> for only the horizontal space between cells, thus excluding
any effect on left/ right outmost space of a table

<vcellspacing> for only the vertical space between cells, thus excluding
any effect ontop/bottom outmost space of a table.

<table cellpadding>

as above
<table hcellpadding>
<table vcellpadding>

these differenciations would allow us to draw more controlled layouts.

i appreciate very much the efforts by netscape to promote the quality of
www page design by taking the lead in specifying the necessary HTML tags.
