Where can I find a list of CSS incompatabilities?

I have been using the "Master List" (
http://webreview.com/wr/pub/guides/style/mastergrid.html) to determine which CSS
attributes worked for each browser.  However, I have found a bug that is not
listed there and was wondering if there is any other compatability lists
available regarding CSS.

The bug is this:
In Netscape 4.08 (not that I would ever use such a crappy browser), if you have
a table surrounded by a CENTER tag, the table will be centered.  However, if you
then use style sheets and create a class that will right align all text, and you
assign this class to each TD, the CENTER tag seems to be ignored and the table
is left aligned.

Below is an example of this behavior (this works correctly in IE).  If you
remove the class assignment from the TD tags, the table is centered, but as soon
as you add them, it get screwed up.  Also, if you keep the class assignment, but
remove the first <TR> through it's closing </TR> then the page is aligned
properly.

<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<style type="text/css">
.lib { text-align: right; background-Color: #eeeeee;}
</style>
</head>
<body>

<CENTER>
<TABLE BORDER="1">
     <TR>
          <TD COLSPAN="2" class="lib">
               test1
          </TD>
     </TR>

     <TR>
          <TD COLSPAN="2" class="lib">
               test2
          </TD>
     </TR>

     <TR>
          <TD  WIDTH="50%">
               <A HREF="Home.html">Home</A>
          </TD>

          <TD>
               <A HREF="Home.html">Home</A>
          </TD>
     </TR>
</TABLE>
</CENTER>

</body>
</html>
