Subject: What happened with <td width=> in Cougar?

What happened to de width en height attributes for <TD>/<TH> in 
Cougar? According to the DTD's it is included in Wilbur but not in 
Cougar.

I found this when I was checking a page with the new Cougar DTD after 
it already validated with the Wilbur DTD.


Quote from the Wilbur DTD:

<!ATTLIST (th|td)          -- header or data cell --
nowrap (nowrap)  #IMPLIED  -- suppress word wrap --
rowspan NUMBER   1         -- number of rows spanned by cell --
colspan NUMBER   1         -- number of cols spanned by cell --
%cell.halign;              -- horizontal alignment in cell --
%cell.valign;              -- vertical alignment in cell --
width   %Pixels  #IMPLIED  -- suggested width for cell --
height  %Pixels  #IMPLIED  -- suggested height for cell -->
