    hi all,
    suppose i have the following XHTML doc.

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
    <head>
    <title>Welcome</title>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    </head>

    <body>
    <table align="center" width="100%" height="100%">
    <tr>
    <td valign="middle" align="center">
    hello
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </body>
    </html>

    If the "DOCTYPE" tag is *not* present, the word "hello" will be in the
    middle of the page
    (because of the "height" attribute in the "table" element)

    But in XHTML, the "table" element does not allow "height" attribute, what
    should i do in order to display the
    word "hello" in the middle of the page? I need a method that is compatible
    with transitional XHTML and
    also compatible with previous HTML versions.

    Nor does HTML.
