In the first three tests in the above page, captions seem to be setting the size of tables. The widths of the caption and the table should instead be independent. The width property on the table is being ignored. Expected: widths of first three tests are as described Actual: table is always just bigger than the caption, based on what the caption width should be. The difference seems to be double the border width of the table. Tested on: viewer and apprunner, 1999-07-17, Linux.

The widths of the captions and the tables now seem to be independent in the latest builds, marking it WORKSFORME. Tested on apprunner, 1999073008 Linux, 1999073011 Windows 95
Reopening. This bug has partially regressed. The second test case in the above page is now wrong. Captions are expanding the widths of tables. See http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/tables.html#q5 for why this is wrong.

Summary: captions are setting size of tables → captions are expanding size of tables
Steve, the caption frame is a block frame. In the 2nd table, the caption has a style width set and is saying that its max element size is 600px (the same as its desired size) which is wrong. If, I am not mis-using the block frame class here, then this problem must surely be causing a bunch of other block related problems.

Please update the TFV from the current M11 state.
seems pretty important. will look into this for M16.

chris: this is the bug we talked about this afternoon. I think the block frame is doing the right thing returning it's CSS-specified width as its max element width. Please investigate further. Troy, does that sound like the right definition of "max-element-size?"

This is fixed. There is still a problem where the caption is not honoring box-sizing (so the caption will appear wider than the table) but I have a fix for that and will check it in shortly.
