Note 33 looks wrong.  <P>, as Arnoud points out, cannot be used in
<CAPTION>.  It would be better if Note 33 said that the horizontal
alignment in effect for the element containing the <TABLE> applies to
the <CAPTION> content.  If this is not suitable, a <DIV> may be placed
around the <TABLE> with the required horizontal alignment.

Perhaps subclause 32.4 should read:

As <CITE>Harry S. Truman</cite> said 
<Q LANG="en-US">The buck stops here.</Q>
