      Because CENTER or any other block level element isn't allowed in paras.

      This line means P can only contain inline elements.
      <!ELEMENT P - O (%inline;)*
      http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/text.html#edef-P

      WDG puts it in plain text.
      Contents Inline elements
      http://www.htmlhelp.com/reference/html40/block/p.html

      Also, CENTER isn't part of (X)HTML Strict. Validation would have told you
      quicker than I did. ;-)

          Thanks, Marcelo.

          I understood that from your previous post. Unfortunately, I had already sent off my response some 4 hours before it finally showed up in the list. I don't know what limbo Yahoo was suspending it in, but I would have cancelled it if I could.

          Subject: Re: [NH] Tidy strips <center> tags within <p> tags


          On the last exciting episode, aired on 30/9/2006 16:17, Cary Driscoll
          invited the wrath of the gods by saying:
          > Does Tidy have a setting for telling it to ignore deprecated tags or leave them alone?
          >

          You don't need one. If Tidy finds a deprecated tag, it will just change
          the DTD heading accordingly (for instance, changing a "Strict" DTD to a
          "Transitional"). In XHTML (but not HTML), it even does the reverse: if
          it finds the code "looks" compliant, it will upgrade the DTD to Strict.

          The problem here wasn't the deprecated tag; it was the improper nesting
          of <center> tags inside <p> tags.

                  Hi Lee,
                  <p style="text-align: center;"> does the job of centering.

                  I could not get <p class="center"> to work.
                  I added this: .center {text-align:center;} to the CSS.
                  I also removed "text-align: left" from the Gallery DIV:
                  div#gallery p {text-align: left;margin: 10px 0 10px 0;font: 100%/1.3
                  Georgia,'Times New Roman',Times,serif}
                  My thinking was the Content DIV might be inheriting the left alignment from
                  the Gallery rules.

                  Any thoughts on this?
                  I will post to CSS Discuss http://www.css-discuss.org/ if this goes not
                  further here.
