Now that the browsers are starting to conform to standards, I've been
trying to learn the standards instead of the bugs.
I've noticed that TABLE does not have a HEIGHT attribute.
Many many times I've used WIDTH="100%" and HEIGHT="100%" (with TD
ALIGN="center" VALIGN="center") in a TABLE so that I can center the
contentin the middle of the browser display (no matter what their
monitor size or the size they have their browser window at).
But when I view these pages on Opera, the content is not in the middle
of the display because HEIGHT is not an attribute of TABLE.

Will HEIGHT be included in the specs for TABLE?
Is there another way of specifying a TABLE to a specific height?
How else can I center content in the center of a browser window?

Joe.

And while I'm on the subject... why is WIDTH and HEIGHT deprecated for
TD? What will take the place?
