I'm sure you _can_ find tables in the which use <TR ALIGN="CENTER"> on
every row; in some cases, to very good effect.  It _should_ do what Lynx
and the other browsers you tested do.  You should only be changing the
effect of centering on a whole-table basis.

Imagine, for example, a poem which is meant to be symmetrical and shaped
like (say) an hourglass.  Each of its rows should be individually
centered for the best effect.
