(standard mode) colspan values incorrectly change table size
A cell's width changes (shrinks or enlarges) depending on its colspan values, even if there are no other columns in the table. The current behavior is as follows: colspan > 800: width = 0 800 > colspan > 300: width decreases as colspan decreases 300 > colspan: width = auto IE never decreases the width of the cells (which means the text is always readable.)

I've compared the testcase in: Netscape Communicator 4.51 Internet Explorer 4.0 Mozilla Apprunner 1999-09-24-08 all this under Win98 The testcases looks almost exactly the same in all the three. I'm marking this WORKSFORME. Ps. Your logic seems reverse, btw. The (spanned) cell width _increases_ as the colspan value _increases_. The reason is the width of the spanned cells is the sum of the cells it spans including (of course) the cellspacing between them. So altough all columns has a width of 0, when cellspacing isn't 0 the colspanned cell gets to the width: cellspacing*(colspan-1) at least.

Summary: colspan values change table size → (standard mode) colspan values incorrectly change table size
hyp-x: Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I tested this on apprunner, and the behavior was not reproducible; I then tested it in viewer -- and the problem still exists when viewer is in Standard mode. In standard mode, the testcase displays incorrectly.
