Am reporting 3 problems against Mozilla M6, both related to HTML table: 1. When a table cell is empty (i.e. containing just "<td></td>"), and table border is non-0, Mozilla does NOT display a border around that cell, so it looks "raised flat" compared to other cells. Workaround: use <td> </td> instead. 2. HTML 4.0 has a new tag: <COL> so I can set common attributes (i.e. align="center") for an entire column of cells. Mozilla seems to ignore this new tag. 3. Mozilla also seems to ignore another new HTML 4.0 <COLGROUP> too, but I can't be sure. Fyi, all 3 problems also exist in Netscape 4.6. For comparison, MS InternetExplorer 5.0 has none of these 3 problems.
If issue (1) is a bug report, it would be related to the default value of the empty-cells property, which works correctly, as seen in http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~dbaron/css/test/tborder2.html I believe the CSS2 default value agrees with legacy behavior. If it doesn't, then this could be handled in quirks mode. I haven't tested that the CSS2 initial value is the one used. Issues 2 and 3 are valid bugs if correct. I will make a test case.
Marked with [TESTCASE].
Note that ALIGN and VALIGN on COL and COLGROUP cannot be done using CSS, since CSS does not allow text-align and vertical-align to inherit through table-columns and table-column-groups. This may be an issue to raise in www-style.
Spoke to karnaze during bug triage today. Moving to M11. Not an M10 blocker.
Moving to M13.
mass move to m14.
Bulk moving [testcase] code to new testcase keyword. Sorry for the spam!
Putting on on PDT- radar for beta1. Would not hold beta for this bug. chrisd, please feel free to release note at: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=25524
Issues 2 and 3 are a duplicate of bug 915. I don't believe Issue 1 valid. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 915 ***
