Sorry, I was presuming Mary meant Netscape 6/Mozilla; as you said, FIELDSET
is not supported at all by Navigator 4.x, and so she wouldn't really be able
to tell if it were centered or not.

It's more than that: FIELDSET is not supported by Navigator 4. You
will need to wait for Netscape 6/Mozilla (later this year, or so
it is promised) to get FIELDSETs laid out the way you want.
