Which is correct for the Doctype you are validating against.

I think those are proprietary values (i.e. not even legacy), and would
consider it a bug in Dreamweaver if it is prompting you with them for a
document with a Doctype which they are incompatible with.

Besides, align attributes are obsolete given the level of support CSS
has had from browsers for the past half decade.
