Banner ads on Slashdot have no vertical space between them and the rest of the page content, like they should.
Confirmed on 2000052120 on Win2K
It appears that when a <p> is sandwiched between two tables, it is ignored. (a <p> between 2 images or between a table and an image works fine)
wdormann, thanks for the testcase! This problem is QuirkMode only: in Standard mode we get vertical spacing consistently. The problem is more general than originally stated and is not restricted to tables. I'll attach a testcase showing that having an empty P between two blocks causes the problem. If the empty P is between an inline and a block, or between two inlines then there is no problem. Re-phrasing the summary and assigning to buster. New testcase will be attached.

Marking compat. Nom. nsbeta3, recc. nsbeta3 [some lenient date-]. Ps were historically widely consider as (and used as) "spacers" so I suspect there's a fair amount of this out there. Would like to emulate in quirks but wouldn't hold rtm for it.
Keywords: compat, nsbeta3
I reduced this down and found it's just a dup. Already fixed in my tree, to be checked in soon. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 35772 ***
