User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021129 Phoenix/0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021129 Phoenix/0.4

in the page http://gurugaming.com/gzgaming the table there is meant to show up
in the middle of the page.  Because that table is itself set in another
invisible table with no valign set and thus anything inside should be set to
middle like in IE.  Update: It also doesn't align with a valign tag set to middle.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Site
2. Look at page
3. Compare with IE

Actual Results:  
The table was not set to middle

Expected Results:  
middle table should be verticlly centered

For me, the table IS set to the middle, even when resizing the window.

Oh, you meant vertically. Sorry, my mistake. I looked at it in IE, and Ben is
right, it is not centering VERTICALLY.

This is abug in IE, not in Mozilla or Phoenix. Tables are always displayed from
the top on. 

You can't use the height-argument in a table definition. Height is only allowed
in a td-definition. When eliminating the height argument in the table. IE
displays the table just like Mozilla or Phoenix.

Therefore the webmaster should get rid of those height arguments (and of the
deprecated and redundant <center> tags, too) and just write correct and valid html.

Marking INVALID.
