Trivial, but I'm reporting it anyway. This code: <table width="100%" bgcolor=beige cellpadding=2> <tr> <td> <font size="1"><p>Test</p></font> </td> </tr> </table> Produces a different-looking display than this: <table width="100%" bgcolor=beige cellpadding=2> <tr> <td> <p><font size="1">Test</font></p> </td> </tr> </table> (i.e. with the P and FONT tags nested differently) I think the layout should be identical. I found an example of this on our school's website, so I figured I may as well report it.
Over to layout..

It looks like the <font> enclosing the paragraph is acting like a block-level element, or something, as it seems to add extra line space. This may be a quirks mode thing to keep other pages from breaking, in which case I suppose it would be wontfix...
