Closed Bug 228895 Opened 20 years ago Closed 20 years ago
"align" and "valign" attributes -- and their CSS equivalents -- are ignored at the <col> or <colgroup> level in tables
. attributes must then be set at the individual <tr> or <td> level
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Below is a test table to demonstrate the problem... Col 1 should display with alignment Top-Right, as per HTML Spec. In any Mozilla browser that I've tested, the column ignores the <col> attributes and does not align correctly. Note that the same problem occurs using the CSS Style method for <col> or <colgroup> elements (i.e. the style is ignored). Internet Explorer correctly renders the pages, as per HTML spec. <table border="1"> <colgroup colspan="3" width="200"> <col align="right" valign="top"> <col> <col> </colgroup> <tr> <th>Test Header Col 1</th> <th>Test Header Col 2<br>Test</th> <th>Test Header Col 3</th> </tr> <tr> <td>Test Data Col 1</td> <td>Test Data Col 2</td> <td>Test Data Col 3<br>test</td> </tr> </table> Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set up a test HTML file, including the sample table included in "Details" 2. Open the HTML file in Mozilla. 3. Gaze in wonder at the incorrectly aligned table-column Actual Results: Table-column not aligned as expected. Expected Results: Correctly rendered the table-column alignment.
This is a dupe of an old bug, bug 915.
Paul, if you want to submit a reduced testcase (which is ok and appreciated), then use the "Create a New Attachment" in the form. Also, check if the bug has no duplicate and keep summary to its most relevant description. I'm marking this as a DUPLICATE of bug 915. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 915 ***
