The example below shows the problem. The expected behaviour is the same as in IE 5.0 <HTML> <HEAD> <TITLE>Table render problem</TITLE> </HEAD> <BODY> <table style="background:#4F556A;" border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 width='400' > <tr> <td style="background:#4F556A;" > <table border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" width='400' > <tr > <td style="background:#CDCDBE;font-family:arial,sans-serif;font-size:9pt;" nowrap rowspan='2' nowrap > row 1 column 1 rowspan 2 </td> <td style="background:#F5F4E7;font-family:arial,sans-serif;font-size:9pt;" nowrap align='right' nowrap > r1 c2 </td> <td style="background:#F5F4E7;font-family:arial,sans-serif;font-size:9pt;" nowrap nowrap > r1 c3 </td> </tr> <tr > <td style="background:#CDCDBE;font-family:arial,sans-serif;font-size:9pt;" nowrap colspan='2' nowrap > r 2 c 2 </td> </tr> </table></td></tr></table></BODY> </HTML>
The HTML provided renders correctly as far as I can tell in linux build 2000-12-05-08. Reporter, could you please provide us with more information, such as your build id and see whether you can reproduce this with a recent nightly build? Also, if you can provide screenshots of a correct rendering and an incorrect one, that would help a lot.
WMF, build 200120804 on WinNT4 Sp6b Even if there are some errors in the HTML. Are you using a DTD, and if so something like this?? <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> And try validating your page at: http://validator.w3.org/check Friendly, HJ.
My build id is 20001108 (the updated Netscape 6 version) on WinNT4 sp5. I have checked using DTD and validated the page (I had to make a few changes - ie remove repeated nowrap) but the problem persists. The problem is that the table background color overflows and can be seen as thicker right border in this case. Altering the width or increasing the content size solves the problem I could test it on the latest build but would it be generally available soon? Regards Srinivas
I've just added the html as an attachment (helps ensure that everyone is looking at the same html). I've also added a formatted and html validated version of the original html. Both attachments look the same to with in Mozilla 2000121008 in WinNT as in IE5.5
Reporter, now you see how important it is to explain exactly what you are seeing, and what's wrong with that! I thinks, this is only a small cosmetic bug. I will take a closer look, now I know where to look for! Friendly, HJ.

Please take a closer look before closing this bug!
As you now ALL can see the first one is wrong! The second one is taken out of Internet Explorer! So, why is this invalid? Please clarify! Did you not see this problem? Friendly, HJ.
