Maybe someone out there with influence in the development of HTML
can do something with this...

It'd be useful to have a means of centering a section of text relative
to a specific point. e.g.

text on left ... more text on the right side

could be displayed as,

                       text on left ... more text on the right side

maybe by using tags such as,

<P ALIGN="CENTERED">text on left <MIDPOINT>...</MIDPOINT> more text on the right side</P>

The only way to do this right now is with tables, and that makes it
unfriendly w.r.t non-tables browsers. At least with the above, the text
would remain visible, even if it isn't displayed centered.
