Created attachment 591066 [details] max_width_issue.html User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_7_2) AppleWebKit/534.52.7 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.1.2 Safari/534.52.7 Steps to reproduce: See attached HTML. Created a two column layout with -moz-column-count: 2 Put a table width=100% in it. Placed an image in the table that was wider than the column width chosen by the browser Assigned max-width:100% to the image Actual results: The image continued to overflow the column horizontally Expected results: The image should have been resized to constrain it to 100% of the column width. This does seem quite an edge case but I'm getting bitten by it. Note I'm only using the table around the image because of bug 549114 - see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=549114#c4 so that would be the priority for me.

I'm not sure where the expected results are coming from. "width:100%" on a table doesn't actually make it the width of the container. In particular, tables never shrink below their min-intrinsic width. If you take out the column style and just set the div to "width:400px" you get the same overflowing behavior in Opera (but not WebKit). Of course the spec doesn't define width computation for auto-layout tables. It also doesn't define min-intrinsic width computations, so the only constraint on table width algorithms is existing web site compat. David, would it make any sense to set the min-intrinsic width to something other than the intrinsic width for replaced elements with a percentage max-width?
I'm not so sure this is a bug. The image is constrained to be at most 100% of the width of the cell. The table is specified to be 100% of the width of its containing block, but tables are never smaller than their minimum intrinsic width. It's not clear to me how the max-width on the image inside of the cell is supposed to suppress or affect the image's effect on the intrinsic minimum width of the table.
Also, are the columns actually a necessary part of the testcase? I'd think you'd get the same result without multicolumn.

It looks like we and Presto do the same thing; WebKit does something else. I don't have Trident on hand right now. > Also, are the columns actually a necessary part of the testcase? No. See the last sentence of comment 2 paragraph 1. All the columns are doing is creating a containing block for that table that's narrower than the image.
OK, if it's not a bug I'll just add a comment to bug 549114 to note that the workaround of wrapping a table around content to avoid column breaks within content has a problem with this case. That's what I was doing when I found this issue.
Dupe of bug 434230?
