Description

20 years ago
When trying to assign a percentage number to the table width the table body
(seen by its outer border) becomes much smaller than its content, even its
first cell. Using a numerical value for the width makes the rendering correct.

By the way (perhaps someone in QA):

I believe that this is the same bug as 1396, 1474, 1699, 1825. 1474 & 1699 are
already marked as duplicates, but perhaps these should be added. The best
description of this bug is in 1474. You can verify 1396 & 1825 as dups by
taking the URL (or test case) and *not* using <table width="nn%">.

You can also see the oversize table (on first loading) in the test pages that
come with NGLayout builds (in the first table
in resource:/res/samples/test3.html and the second table down in
resource:/res/samples/test4.html).

This bug can masquerade as 'missing elements' (the oversize table can sometimes
block out other elements: see my.netscape.com
where the "help" and "sign in" icons (second 'row' to the right hand side) are
"missing" on first load (but are shown after a reflow, which gets the table
outer frame size correct).  (my box -- Win 95 nightly build Dec 16 last tested)

The 100% width tables in sample 4 looks ok on 4/1 optimized WinNT. Chris D,
please verify this on Win98.
