Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030612
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030612

The above is another sample of a webpage which IE6 displays properly but Mozilla
does not..  Likely (as with others) there is an html "error" which prevents this
page from displaying properly.  However,  If IE6 ignores such errors and Mozilla
does not display the page properly, which browser is a user likely to consider
faulty?  And..  which browser is a user likely to want to use?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.Load the above page.
3.



Expected Results:  
If it was possibile to display a page properly EVEN IF it has some sort of
common html error, Mozilla would be wise to do it so users will not get the idea
that Mozilla is faulty (since IE6 seems to display such pages properly.)

There are lots of examples of the above.

Let's at least pontificate in a category that might be correct for this bug.

testcase

<table width=1000>
 <tr><td width="100%">
   <img src="something.gif" width=600><img src="something.gif" width=600>
 </td></tr>
</table>

the images wrap rather than expanding the width of the table.

the images in the document (the top frame) are wider than the table's specified
width.	with the column width being specified as 100%, the table refuses to
expand to accomodate the images without wrapping.

in standards compliance mode, the images are always wrapped, even without the
100% column width.
