Today the CSS working group resolved CSS 2.1 issue 26:
in a way that is compatible with IE but not with our code, so we should change our behavior to match.
In particular, it says that the 'height' property on table cells does not change the height of the cell box, but only sets a minimum height on the row. This means that:
* we should stop increasing the height of the anonymous box inside table cells in response to the 'height' property. (which also allows us to eliminate one of the two sets of table cell vertical alignment code, IIRC)
* we should replace that code with code that is part of row height calculation
The combination of the two changes should only change testcases that involve 'vertical-align: baseline'.
For more details, see:
Actually, the code isn't as I remembered it, so this may just require an update to nsTableRowFrame::UpdateHeight.

I am adding these
hoping they are useful for this bug report.
