Hi Susan,

I wanted to reply to some of the specifics in your message.

I believe we can get by without text-align:justify.  I have passed your

I have removed the <p>'s from inside the profile tables and added 2px of
padding to their table cells, but not all browsers seem to support the
padding property on table cells.

Thanks again for all your suggestions - the specification has certainly
