Saloni, building on this table is best done in excel with formulas 
turned off. This is since -webkit-center will been seen as a formula and 
will be converted to #NAME?

 From Excel you copy all the cells with content and paste in Notepad. 
Then you remove whitespace in Notepad and then copy that into the HTML. 
This is outline here and take about 5 minutes.


Using steps 7 to 19. Forget the FP steps. :-)

You have noticed the differences in the vertical margins of H1, H2, H3, 
H4, H5, H6 and P elements. This is incorrect since IE7 will show 
vertical margins of 19px approximately for the margin-top. How are you 
testing this?
