Works for me.
Please, when reporting HTML export problem: always indicate which
browser you use to view the result (test it also yourself before
submitting) and which export format/encoding you used in Tools -
Options -Load/Save - HTML Compatibility (test it also yourself before

Utomo > ES:
if you read my attachements description you will find what you ask
screenshot exported html at internet explorer 6, win xp.
How can I make the screenshot if I didn't view it ? 

I use default setting as this is mostly used by user. and this is
mostly no need to report in the issue if we use default setting.

reopen, as there is no reason to resolve this issue

ES->Utomo: you're right I can now reproduce it.
But to my last comments:
I meant that trying a little bit the different export/import formats
and experimenting with other browsers (if possible) *before
submitting* an issue helps us surrounding the problem and saves time.
Also, the fact that I can *see* (screen shot) you have a problem does
not make me *reproduce* this problem.
Comment 8 eric.savary 2003-11-17 17:19:51 UTC
ES->MIB: please avluate

when a css style like:

P.myclass {...text-align: left;...}

is defined and a a paragraph overrides this definition with an hard
formatting like this:

<P CLASS="myclass" ALIGN=RIGHT...>

this hard formatting is ignored by the browsers and the css style only
is affected. OOo only shows correctly shows the hard formatting.

Who's right?

utomo> ES:
OK next time I will try if possible to try more and give more data so
will be easier for developer to trace the problem. 

Just note: The CSS style is made by OOo when export, so it probably
can happens in most export to html. 
Comment 10 michael.brauer 2003-11-18 12:59:29 UTC
I didn't find a specific rule for this. However
HTML 3.2 did not define the CLASS at all, and ALIGN is deprectated in
HTML 4. Anyway, it seems to me that ignoring the ALIGN specification
is most reasonable.

Since the specifying two different values (left and right) for one and
the same property (align) in two different ways (HTML and CSS) seems
not be very consistent, and an issue that is related to resolving this
inconsistency seems not be a P3 for me.

Hi Michael Brauer, this issue and issue 22176  exist since 2003, please 
consider a target maybe 2.01 ?

This is a basic layout for html. 
without this, the OOo will not be able to use as HTML editor. 

just my 2c

Resulting HTML with conflicting ALIGN tags
Comment 16 greyham 2008-04-03 23:44:41 UTC
I agree that this is a serious problem, since it affects even very simple 
layouts, and make look like a very lousy HTML editor.

Looking at the attached files centre.*, the reference to the image in 
centre.html has conflicting tags:
- The paragraph tag correctly says to align CENTER,
- But the image has another ALIGN tag saying LEFT which overrides this.

If I manually delete the ALIGN= tag from the image, I get the correct result.
