From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:0.9.4+) Gecko/20010913

BuildID:    2001091308

can not delete single cell within a talble. If will delete the contents within
cell or the formating of the cell, but not the actual cell.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert table: 3 columns, 3 rows
2. Place cursor into any cell.
3. From menu choose table > select > cell
4. From menu choose Table >delete >cell (or hit delete key on keyboard)

Actual Results:  Content with in the cell is deleted, cut the cell remains. 


Expected Results:  I would expect that the entire cell would be removed. As well
as a diaglog box asking if you wanted the remaining cells of that row or column
to be adjusted.

I verified this with the composer/ table editing preference set to delete entire
cell as well as unchecking the "maintain table layou..."
It does not seem to matter if it is checked or not.

Bug #95633 covers the preference not working; this bug should cover the menu 
selection of Table | Delect | Cell not working.

If the preference "Maintain table layout..." is unchecked,
and the radio button "Removes the entire cell" is checked,
then the cell is completely deleted when you use "Table | Delete | Cell(2)" 
menuitem. 
Note that the delete key never deletes the entire cell. The pref wording is 
incorrect (see bug 95633)
