This might be a dupe, but I couldn't find one.

See testcase, which current trunk build I get a horizontal scrollbar, which doesn't happen with branch builds.

This regressed when the reflow branch landed.

I'm pretty sure this is the outer table frame contributing to the overflow area. It shouldn't, but the invariant that the overflow area contains the frame size makes this impossible to fix by modifying the overflow area of the outer table frame.

I'm not sure what we're going to do about outer table frames and captions for 1.9. David, do you have a plan?
David, your table fixes don't change the size of the outer table frame so this is still going to be a problem. I'm guessing we just don't fix this for 1.9?
BTW I don't see the bug in the original site.

I believe this is the same bug and I can offer a test case with results.

I generated two test pages. One did not use a position:relative offset of a table and one did. I took screen shots of 4 examples.

1 - Firefox 3 with no offset
2 - Firefox 3 with offset
3 - Firefox 2 with offset
4 - Opera 9.51 with offset

They are attached as test_results.png

In #2 a horizontal scrollbar appears. For the 3 cases with Firefox I used the Webdeveloper add-on to "Outline Block Level Elements". It is clear for #2 that the offset "expands" the block by the amount of the offset.

I have attached the two HTML test files as No_Offset.html and Offset.html
