edwardsmarkf has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

hello - i am trying to format a large table in an existing perl script. when i use

$cgi->TR ( { -height => '100', -valign => 'bottom' } ...

the html is appearing with just:

<tr bottom height="100">

and i was hoping for this:

<tr valign='bottom' height="100">

it behaves as if somehow the "-valign" part is being "optimized" away, perhaps for a much older standard of html tables.
is there some easy workaround to this issue? i dont have time to re-do all this with some slick css option.

This is perl 5, version 26, subversion 3 (v5.26.3)
