Hmmm... At first I was sure that Fred must have made some kind of
mistake. HTML 4 and XHTML 1.0 should be identical for things like
this. But then I tested it, and found that

  <div align="justify">

makes a doc invalid if I label it as XHTML 1.0 Transitional, but
gives no error if I relabel the doc as HTML 4.01 Transitional.

Is this an oversight in the XHTML Transitional DTD?
