Bug Description

WCAG 2.0 G140 asks us to use CSS for formatting and HTML for structure (see https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/G140). Using the valign attribute of an HTML tag violates this rule. The valign attribute is used several times on the advanced search screen. I quickly checked what the display looks like with this attribute removed, and I noticed no differences in Firefox. Therefore, I propose that the valign attribute be removed throughout the advanced search page.
