In the top table, the width has been set to 595 (pixels) through the HTML attribute WIDTH. The images total 596px in width, however, thus causing wrapping of the images within cells and thus shattering the layout. The cells have been given the HTML attribute NOWRAP, and NN4.x as well as IE will increase the size of the table rather than wrap contents of the NOWRAP cells. This is probably the best solution for Mozilla as well, at least while in Quirks mode. This bug has also led to problems on Web sites like Gateway, so it's fairly important that we fix this. Just so you know, changing the width of the table to match its contents fixes the problem (and I'll be evangelising this solution to NASA shortly), but that's not really relevant: there's still a problem here, mostly in that we do something which legacy authors won't expect. I realize this is similar to the problems described in bug 21025 and bug 71596, but this report is not quite the same as those reports-- although I suspect they may all be related. When in Strict mode, then I believe the table should be the defined size and the cell contents shouldn't wrap, but instead be displayed according to the value of 'overflow' for the given situation. (But that's a different discussion...)
Correction to above: I meant bug 31025, not 21025. Apologies for any confusion.
