cells with <br> alone considered empty
Does not interpret the default stylesheet correctly. The background images for certain tags are not rendered as they should be.
Assignee: don → karnaze
Component: Browser-General → HTMLTables
Summary: CSS error → cells with <br> alone considered empty
Moving this to HTMLTables. Changing title from "CSS Error" to "cells with <br> alone considered empty". The problem in this page is that many of the lines are background images on cells that are simply <td><br></td>. According to CSS, backgrounds for empty cells are not drawn. What is happening here is that <br> is not being considered content for the purposes of determining if a cell is empty. I think it should be (it's kinda like an escaped \0x0A). Furthermore, that seems to be compatible with past browsers: the author wouldn't have put the <br> if it didn't trigger some other browser to draw the background. Thus, more formally (using my testcase): STEPS TO REPRODUCE: Load attached testcase. EXPECTED BEHAVIOR: Second and third cells of second row red. CURRENT BEHAVIOR: Only the third cell is red.
To finish what I was saying... DOES NOT WORK CORRECTLY IN: * Linux, apprunner, 1999-08-20-13-M10 WORKS (ALMOST) CORRECTLY IN: * NN 4.6 Linux (except the cells aren't red, but you can see by the borders that only the first cell is being considered empty)
