This bug sprang off of bug 71038. See attachment 39534 [details]. (http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/showattachment.cgi?attach_id=39534) It should be possible to do the following: <a href="something"> <td> Some text</td> </a> or even: <a href="something"> <td>Some text</td> <td>Some more text</td> <td><img src="someimage.png"><br></td> </a> All the table cells that are enclosed in an <a> tag should be treated in whole as hyperlinks. MS IE handles this, and an example of a page that uses this is http://www.x86.pl .
I added a dcotype and went to validator.w3.org this bug is either invalid or should belong to evangilism Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML parser. * Line 10, column 37: <a href="http://office.altkom.com.pl"> ^ Error: element "A" not allowed here; possible cause is an inline element containing a block-level element (explanation...) * Line 11, column 4: <td> This should be a clickable link </td> ^ Error: element "TD" not allowed here; check which elements this element may be contained within (explanation...) * Line 13, column 6: </tr> ^ Error: missing a required sub-element of "TR" (explanation...)
HTML does NOT allow you to enclose one or more table cells within a link; table cells are block-level content, which enclose inline content such as links. If you want to make a number of table cells links, each one has to enclose a link; the HTML content model just doesn't support the example given above. Closing as INVALID; if there's strong demand for this (mis)feature, we can reopen.

It seems the reporter's intent was to get this to work so this is verified invalid. Since a site happened to sneak by, Bug 93969 has been filed regarding the evangelism on x86.pl
