regress: colgroup / col has no support at all
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; T312461; EDS) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030311 Mozilla is out of compliance with HTML4.01 <COLGROUP> / <COL> examples given in w3.org spec. I've done research on previous bugs which have claimed to close this (#4510, #68998, #91034 ?), but in today's (March 11, 2003) nightly binary, there is absolutely no way to tell (visually) that COLGROUP / COL is even being supported. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. No support for <COLGROUP ALIGN="center"> 2. No support for <COL STYLE="font-face: sans-serif"> 3. No support for <COLGROUP STYLE="background: pink"> (I'm not really expecting this one, but it remains an issue). Actual Results: Running against the W3C example table at then end of the HTML4.01 table spec indicates that mozilla's latest nightly is totally out of compliance with expected behaviour. Expected Results: Render it correctly? ;^) See also: http://www.mozilla.org/newlayout/testcases/css/columnstyle.html for a mozilla testcase showing this breakage. Fix this, please! It's embarrasing that it doesn't work. Not quite Sev: Major because I'm guessing that COLGROUP is not a widely used attribute, but I want to use it for Neat Dynamic Table / JS effects, and it would really irritate me if it didn't work in Mozilla.
