In all my site a style sheet for tables is used, which defines a font-size of 10pt. Mozilla M17 uses size 14 instead. So instead of decreasing the size, it increases it.
Does this test case illustrate your problem?
Note that IE behaves similarly, but not identically: it displays Table 2 as the reporter and I would expect, but treats Table 3 the same way Mozilla Build ID 2000080808 does.
Can't shut me up: should add that I'm seeing this on NT.

Using: Build 2000-08-09-08 on Windows 98 I modified the first attachment to be HTML 4.01 STRICT compliant, and it appears to render correctly. But NOT if I specify doctype transitional.
This is related to the tables-don't-inherit-stuff bug, recommend WONTFIX or Future since we have a lot more important bugs on our plate.
This is correct NavQuirks behavior. Marking INVALID. Please see bug 1044 fo some of the history on this one (there is a lot).
