The errors reported by the HTML 5 Conformance Checker for
<http://battlefieldspost144.net/> http://battlefieldspost144.net/ seem to be
strange and a little out of order. Each of the "errors" reported advised:

*	The width attribute on the table element is obsolete. Use CSS
instead.
*	The border attribute is obsolete. Consider specifying img { border:
0; } in CSS instead.
*	The align attribute on the table element is obsolete. Use CSS
instead.
*	The cellpadding attribute on the table element is obsolete. Use CSS
instead.
*	The cellspacing attribute on the table element is obsolete. Use CSS
instead.
*	The value of the border attribute on the table element must be
either 1 or the empty string. To regulate the thickness of table borders,
Use CSS instead.
*	The width attribute on the td element is obsolete. Use CSS instead.
*	The scrolling attribute on the iframe element is obsolete. Use CSS
instead.
*	The frameborder attribute on the iframe element is obsolete. Use CSS
instead.
*	The allowtransparency attribute on the iframe element is obsolete.
Use CSS instead.

The common advice is to use CSS. The site uses CSS - lots and lots of CSS
documents and declarations. The site uses a common CMS (Joomla); the site is
not hand-coded. Content Management Systems permit, even require,
administrators and content developers to use flexibility and configure
elements, such as tables, to fit the design.
 
Are table alignment, image border, cell padding, cell spacing declarations
obsolete? Must all <td> elements be the same width?
 
Sorry; this is simply frustrating.
 
Sincerely,
