It's an interesting effect...  It is not done intentionally for the
effect though, it was easier this way for me than turning partial
display off temporarily.

I guess this may be bad for blind users.  I don't know whether
partial display is usable by them at all, I was assuming that it
probably isn't.

The alignment for each cell can come from (in this order of precedence)

   - the TD/TH's ALIGN= attribute
   - the TR's ALIGN= attribute
   - the TABLE's ALIGN= attribute
   - intrinsic default: left for TD, center for TH 

On the other hand, a <CENTER> or <DIV ALIGN=center> surrounding the
table should have no effect on cell alignment, but will (probably)
affect the position of the table "as a whole.

That's the rules I came up with based on the HTML 4 docs, and some
interpretation thrown in.

So in your example below it is the TH-ness that causes centering
of the header cells.
