Tables. That middle cell is 48px wider than specified...
This bug is still present on Mozilla 1.7b and Firefox .8: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040316 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 Haven't tried Firefox .9 yet.
A reduced testcase would be good here.
Still a bug with: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040707 Firefox/0.9.2 The bug is caused by the long line of hyphens at the bottom of this page. The length of that line exceeds the width of the table cell. If you shorten the number of hyphens, the page renders the same on IE and Firefox. IE breaks the line into two, whereas Firefox extends the entire table cell. I'll upload a very brief testcase that shows the difference.
Created attachment 158342 [details] Table Cell testcase Shows the difference between IE and Mozilla. PS: Bernd I saw your blog, I could use a Gmail account.
I think this is an IE bug, I haven't seen a lot of them in table layout but this seems to be one. We render this identical to opera and NN4.8
*** Bug 269539 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
what IE (also IE8) does it limits the width of the text to the specified 400px for the table cell, while the table is expanded to 700px what is specified as a table width. No other browser does this. I don't see any point in implementing this quirk. As times tells there aren't a lot pages relying on this quirk, we would otherwise have a bunch of dupes.
