Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Accordingly to the standard (http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/index/attributes.html), both the "width" and the "align" attributes can be defined into a <COL> tag.
After all, this is one of the reasons why the <COL> tag exists at all: to define properties related to columns.
What instead happens with Firefox 3 is that the "width" property gets honoured and rendered, while the "align" is not.

Disappoinly, Microsoft Internet Explorer v7 does it right!
