Whether I use that or a CSS class to center the section it is centered either way.
According to the specification:

"Any construct deprecated in XHTML 1.1 is either deprecated or omitted from this specification ..."
which suggests to me that readers are freely allowed to ignore align="center". It probably won't break any readers if you include it (as long as the file passes validation), but you should not count on readers actually supporting it. Try doing a mass search-and-replace, changing align="center" to class="center". Then define a CSS style:

Code:
.center {
    text-align: center;
}
