Description

Platform: Win98, 20010707.

A line of preformatted text (so no line breaks) overlaps table content to the
right - I see the problem on

image showing the bug
ie5 and nn4 render it the same way ... A table aligned right, <pre> text is in
normal flow on its left, I figure the overlap is ok there?

The page uses <!DOCTYPE> for xhtml transitional -- strict mode is being triggered.

Removing the <!DOCTYPE> (invoking quirks) makes it behave exactly like IE.

This is the same thing we see with <hr /> and <table /> elements overlapping
floated elements (filling the entire width of their containing block) in strict
mode.  I gather it's a correct implementation of the CSS spec, but I'm not an
expert on floats.

Simple testcase demonstrating the overlapping issue.

When the table have align="right" it demonstrates overlapping with the content
of the PRE element. The next testcase have align="center" (note that is not
ovelapping). 

This is a case that will be nice if we layout like IE or N4.x.

Same testcase (instead align="right", alignt="center") with NO overlapping.
Closing WORKSFORME on today's Linux CVS. Reopen if you can still see this problem.
