no need to use <center>... don't forget, you're already using 
<table>s for layout, not CSS, so don't worry about getting all 
uptight about handling your alignment via CSS...

just use a <td align="center">... NN's gonna give you problems 
with text-align anyway...

now, if you dumped tables for layout, that's another thing...

also, using <div>s just center stuff is kinda lame... you're just 
adding another non-structural tag for layout purposes... use the 
ones you've got, there's no need for a <div>...

maybe it's me, but somehow i can create some incredibly complex 
layouts with nary a <span> or <div>... tables are more powerful 
than you think, and support for their attributes is far better than 
support for CSS right now...
