Well, I suppose there are good arguments for not equating text-align with
block-align, as ALIGN as a table attribute seems to do. But if we're going
to dump ALIGN as a table attribute, then it's especially a shame that the
"most correct" way to align blocks using CSS1 is not supported by either of
the major browsers.

"I don't have any problems with the rest of the way tables would work,
it seems fairly logical how they would."

I think that if there had been consensus on a logical way to define tables
with CSS1 properties this discussion would not be taking place. Would you
share your insight?
