May I add that we mark FONT and CENTER as deprecated, and remove the
FACE attribute for FONT altogether? With the support for style sheets
expected in the future, the FACE attribute is about as useful as

I would be very surprised if popular browsers would interpret
<UL PLAIN> as <UL TYPE=plain> and render an unbulleted list.

ALL block elements should have those attributes, including ALIGN and
CLASS.
