Technically the text-align behaviour that this document relies on is
incorrect (at least from what I've read). Text align is only supposed to
affect text, not images or tables. I believe the preferred method (which
doesn't work in Internet Explorer) is to set the left and right margins
to auto.

so, what can one use to replace align="center" with <div>.  The notes
that I see say to use styles instead, but so far have offered no
examples.
 
it may be a simple technique, but I haven't found one yet.  let's say I
want to replace this with <div>
 
<body>
<table align="center">
  <tr><td>some text</td></tr>
</table>
 
what would it look like?
 
thanks,
steve
