Internet Explorer and Centring Content

A post to the CSS-Discuss mailing list taught me something new about Internet Explorer bugs. I was under the impression that when in Standards mode the browser would not allow the text-align property to influence the position of block level content. I was wrong. While auto margins are not supported in quirks mode, MSIE will incorrectly align blocks based on text-align values in either mode.

I've updated my document on the subject. While I was at it, I updated the version numbers in the summary table.
