first, align="center" is deprecated.  it is better to say nothing and be 
thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

second, try this (and i apologize for the embedded html):

  <div style="width: 100%; height:100%;">
    <table style="margin: 0px auto;">
      <tr>
        <td>this is a test</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
  </div>

it works in mozilla.  it works in IE.  i haven't tried netscape (though it 
probably doesn't work in NS4.x; try it though).  good luck.

                                                  &#8226; mjumbe &#8226;
