Problem of margin :auto :

- Cannot be used in a default style-sheet for <center> element, since it margins can be overwritten (see -moz-center for the FF proposal)
- Does not allow centering if the content (like an image) is larger than the containing block (browser will automatically left align)

Centering an element inside another one is currently done
applying 'margin: auto' ; how will your proposal and that
live together ?
