When I go to this page the rightmost banner ad covers out some of the data on
the page towards the right of the page.  However, this does not occur when using
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to
2. Let it load completely.
3. Look at the page carefully

Actual Results:  
The banner ad on the right covers part of the page.

Expected Results:  
Display the page in a way that displays the entire page and the banner ad to the
right of the rest of the page, without having the ad cover part of the page.
I'm seeing the exact same problem in Netscape 4 and IE 5/Solaris

the outer table contains multiple tables with align=left that have widths which
add to something greater than the specified width of the table.  Mozilla makes
the outer table to be the minimum of the specified width and the widest nested

in the first table in the testcase, the width is specified to be 100, but it
expands to 150, the smaller of the two nested tables.  The second table is
specified to be 250, which is how it displays.

the consistent behavior with NS4/IE suggests this is the "correct" behavior

While NS4 and IE5 under Solaris might display the same result, and thus this
might appear to be the "correct" behavior, in IE6 under Windows XP Professional
this problem does not exist.

this is  a nasty quirk ,change the doctype to a strict one and you will see that
it wraps.

generally the tables should wrap:
see HTML4.01:
The align attribute for objects, images, tables, frames, etc., causes the object
to float to the left or right margin. Floating objects generally begin a new line.

I wonder if our standard behavior is correct. The cell block containing the 2
aligned tables doesn't report a very appealing max-element-width.

There's a hack to prevent floating tables from "wrapping" in quirks mode.  See 
nsBlockReflowState::FlowAndPlaceFloater.  We're probably not including that in
the max-element-width calculation.

This page looks exactly the same in IE as it does in Mozilla, and no banner ad
is covering the page, and the test case photos are broken.
