Build ID 2000041716 M16 Seems all text that should be right-aligned in cells at above URL gets centered instead.
Summary: right-aligned text in cells gets centered instead → left-aligned text in cells gets centered instead
hmm looked at the source: the text isn't explicitly left-aligned but all other browsers displays it as left-aligned. There's a <DIV ALIGN="justify"> there - perhaps a clue.
rickg checked in some stuff for DTD recognition. Looks like this broke something here: the doctype of this page is HTML 4.0 Transitional, but apparently it gets parsed in standard mose (where <CENTER> menas text-align: center, which inherits into the TABLE cells). Confirming, and reassigning.

This isn't a parser bug. In the new world, the transitional DTD (without strict.dtd URI) is handled as a standard-mode document, meaning we throw out nav quirks. Removing the doctype (or using a doctype the enables quirks) is your anwser. I'm forwarding the layout but to karnaze.

Which doctypes now trigger quirks mode? loose.dtd doesn't seem to.
well hooray - with build ID 2000-041908 it's business as usual - no unexpected centered text on freshmeat.net. But is this a fix or a mishap?
After some discussion in n.p.m.layout, transitional dtd gets processed in quirks mode again. So I'll mark this, hm, FIXED.
