The table you provided is invalid in about six different ways. Always use
a validating parser to check your work before feeding it to the stylesheets.
GIGO applies.

Try this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.2//EN"
<article id="article">
<title>Table Test</title>

<para>ndw: do you really want this table in a list item?</para>
<title>ndw: You have to put a title in here</title>
<!-- attribute center doesn't work --> <!-- ndw: in what implementation? -->
<tgroup align="center" cols="3">
<entry>first column</entry>
<entry>second column</entry>
<entry>third column</entry>
<!-- This link doesn't work within this table only the watsup text -->
<!-- ndw: i bet it works now, with more reasonable looking table entry markup -->
<ulink url="http://watsupwiththis.htm";>watsup </ulink>
