This is seen even when you manually set both the table/row/cell size along with the image size. In the posted link you can easily see this since I have set the cell background to a color. http://abserver2.mmg.uci.edu/~ccrowder/lab/bartest2.html Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Just load the page 2. 3. Expected Results: If you load the above page in IE or safari it correctly sizes the table to fit the image so that 2 rows will have no vertical space between the two images.
This happens because the image sits on the baseline of the inline box. See http://web.archive.org/web/20031203014410/http://devedge.netscape.com/viewsource/2002/img-table/ for a explanation and some solutions (note that the images seems to be gone).
