:>Where is the PLAIN attribute for UL?

I don't think so.  Every 2.0+ version of Netscape that I've gotten
my hands on seems to support width attributes in TH and TD.  I haven't
ever tried height in a TH or TD though so I don't know about that one.

If it's not in 3.2, then 3.2 is wrong, but then I and others have been
saying that for a while.  If only other organizations, like the IETF,
would standardize bad but widely used things, maybe we'd all be using
MS's idiotic extensions to PPP by now.
