After pulling the tree tonight, I noticed this page lays out wrong. I'm assuming it's table related
Likewise, this page is wrong, too: http://www.city.net There's some nasty looking messages on the debug output as well: Area(td)(0)@0145A230: bad parent: maxSize WAS 5514480,1073741824 Area(td)(0)@0144E170: bad parent: maxSize WAS 5514480,1073741824 Area(td)(0)@014608F0: bad parent: maxSize WAS 675190,1073741824 Area(td)(1)@01467BB0: bad parent: maxSize WAS 4839230,1073741824 Area(td)(0)@014694E0: bad parent: maxSize WAS 5514480,1073741824 Area(td)(0)@0145BB90: bad parent: maxSize WAS 5514539,1073741824

Summary: Table is way too wide → Table is not centered
The above url and www.city.net don't appear to be too wide any more. However, putting a <table> inside a <center> needs some Nav4.5 compatibility work. The simple example below illustrates the problem. I'm changing the summary and reassigning this to Kipp. <center> <table border=1><tr><td>foo</tr></table> </center> Kipp says "Oddly enough, its a compatability bug, not a css handling bug. We now conform to css's box model which states that "text-align" applies to "inline boxes". Since a table is not an inline box, it isn't affected by the text-align. We need a compatability hack to enable text-align (or some -moz-center property) to apply in this situation..." Kipp, sorry if I reassigned a similar bug to you before.

I've landed a work around for this problem so that tables are not treated exactly the same as display: block elements. The result is that we may be slightly non-conformant with CSS2...But its not clear! I'm reassigning the bug to peter linss until the style spec issue is resolved - should tables be alignable by text-align or not, or should we event a "-moz-center" attribute for navigator compatability or what. Once the final decision is made, peter can assign it back to me.

I've just checked in compatability code that supports nav4 behavior *and* CSS behavior (at the moment nav4 behavior is on by default).
Using 3/26 build on Win 95, Win NT, Win 98, Linux and Mac8.5, table is centered on all platforms. Verifying bug fixed.
