Description :Ms2ger 2010-06-20 02:00:39 PDT
HTML5 expects us to support left, right, justify, center and middle for align on td, th, tr, col, thead, tbody and tfoot, both in no quirks and quirks mode. Patch upcoming.

So no more absmiddle?  Is that not supported by other UAs?

Actually, absmiddle is hidden in the CSS block above the prose, where all the other values are defined.

I assume comment 3 is talking about the spec, not our code?  Spec link, please?
Comment 5 :Ms2ger 2010-06-20 11:12:31 PDT
Yeah. <http://www.whatwg.org/html/#alignment>, absmiddle is in the second CSS block, the other values are in the prose below.
Comment 6 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (Out June 25-July 6) 2010-07-03 00:55:34 PDT
OK.  So why did the code use to have "center" twice in there, and why is it ok to no longer do that?
Comment 7 :Ms2ger 2010-07-03 12:55:50 PDT
As can be seen at <http://software.hixie.ch/utilities/js/live-dom-viewer/saved/533>, getAttribute("align") currently returns "center" instead of "absmiddle", even though those values have different effects. I don't see the point in having the reverse mapping from text-align:center (rather than text-align:-moz-center) to "center".
