Validating http://programphp.tfburgess.com/

This is in regards to the following 2 error messages:

1) "The center element is obsolete. Use CSS instead."
2) "Whitespace in path component. Use %20 in place of spaces."

At MOST, these should be warnings in the year 2011.  I do realize your
validation rules are based on certain standards, but perhaps those
standards should be revised as well.

1) The center element works perfectly fine and produces the desired
result with less effort and less code.  Don't "fix" what isn't
2) There is absolutely no reason in 2011 for those attributes to be
url encoded as long as they are surrounded by quotes.  When those
attributes are dynamically generated, encoding the URLs can result in
a lot of unnecessary serverside processing.  It is much better to
leave it for clients to process.  Every clock cycle counts.
