In Strict versions, the align attribute is not allowed in <table> tag, but 
you probably meant the user of this attribute in elements inside a <table> 
element, such as <td>. It is allowed there even in Strict versions, for 
reasons that I won't go into (and that are off-topic in this list).

Deprecation as such has no relevance in validation. When an element or 
attribute has been declared as deprecated, it's just a prose statement, 
and validation works by formalized rules only. In practice, elements and 
attributes that have been deprecated are the same that have been dropped 
out in Strict DTDs, but there are exceptions.
