The HTML boils down to this: <table border="1"> <tr> <td style=" float: left; overflow: hidden; width: 20%; "> abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvxyz </td> <td> aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa </td> </tr> </table> This renders a table where the left cell occupies very little space, the right cell takes its 80%, and the space in between the cells doesn't really belong anywhere. Removing the overflow attribute makes the cell content fill the area for the left cell as it should, but the cell border keeps the same minimal size. Mozilla 1.4 (and IE6) renders this as a complete table, the strange behaviour appears in 1.5 and is currently in CVS head. I don't really know if this i correct CSS or not, but even if it weren't it should not be able to break tables, should it? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Our rendering looks pretty much correct. 'float' on table cells makes them no longer be table cells (see http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/visuren.html#dis-pos-flo ). Then we construct anonymous table cells according to the rules in http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/tables.html#anonymous-boxes .
