Thanks!

While i must admit to more or less agreeing to the first part of the 
above sentence, i don't quite understand the second. For instance, 
what users intuitively expect the following should render like it 
does?

  <table align="left">
    <tr><td>First</td></tr>
  </table>
  <table align="center">
    <tr><td>Second</td></tr>
  </table>
  <table align="right">
    <tr><td>Third</td></tr>
  </table>


If you play around a little, you do get interoperability issues, but 
that may be due to the bugs in table and float implementations rather 
than issues with the model.

The above is really not all that interesting, but if you get some 
spare time, i would like help understanding why this is ever 
desirable.
