Well, Mr. District Webmaster,

I _like_ 'middle' instead of 'center', darn it! What do you think makes
this a profession that is highly respected and in demand? It's the fact
that everything is so complicated and convoluted and hard to understand!
If they used 'center' for everything that spaced things equally from
both
sides, then it would be too easy, and _anybody_ could do it!

And RTFineM!

[P.S. Was that any better? I'm still practicing... I guess I need to
read
the BYU/PLUG/SLLUG lists more if I'm ever going to get this right! lol]
