Patch v1

Currently, we call ParseSpecialIntValue ("rules for parsing dimension values" in the spec), and then pull out the percentage's value, and multiply it by 100 (for cellspacing only in quirks mode) to get the result we would already have got if we parsed the value as a simple integer.

It seems to make much more sense to just parse the value as the spec requires and remove all this hackery.

In what way does this affect developers? I don't think it does.
Comment 4 :Ms2ger 2012-02-23 10:24:42 PST
This made us interpret cellspacing=10% as 10 pixels outside quirks mode (was ignored previously). There may be something on the quirks mode page to update?
Comment 5 Eric Shepherd [:sheppy] 2012-02-23 12:38:31 PST
OK, based on what I'm reading here and in bug 106336, it sounds like it behaves the same in both quirks and non-quirks now then?

Docs updated:

And mentioned on Firefox 13 for developers.
