Am in my second semester of HTML using BBEdit from a
strict code purist and everything must validate as
well as the stylesheets. Stayed up nights trying to
get tables to center through a stylesheet only to find
that the only way to do this is to use DIV tags on the
document and in the stylesheet use:   DIV {text-align:
center;}  and then enter your table tag with summary
and whatever. The problem was that strict 4.01 won't
allow an "align" in the stylesheet and the only
non-deprecated CSS property to center is "text-align"
and it works.

Am also taking my first semester in Dreamweaver and
once I learned the above, things went much better. In
Dreamweaver, however, it's necessary to enter a fixed
width for the table for some reason before the above

The unsolved problem I have is how to get those blue
borders from appearing in Netscape without having to
use border="0" in the image tag. Does anyone know of a
CSS workaround that satisfies both NN4.75 and IE5.0
(not interested in how things look in NN6.0, sorry)??????
