You might want to check out the proposal for ALIGN=3DJUSTIFY in:

     "Internationalization of the HyperText Markup Language"
     Internet Draft: <draft-ietf-html-i18n-03.txt>
     Fran=E7ois Yergeau, Gavin Thomas Nicol, Glenn Adams, and=20
          Martin J. Duerst, 13 February 1996, 37 pages
     ftp://ds.internic.net/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-html-i18n-03.txt

IMHO, this is a much cleaner proposal than the implementation of <CENTER>
we've seen, via the ALIGN=3DCENTER in that same proposal.

The other advantage is that it avoids the proliferation of element
names...after <CENTER> and <BLINK> and <JUST> would we next have <WIGGLE>
and <SHIMMY> and <FLICKER>.? :-(  /Harold
