I have noticed this behavior with IE6. It appears that in IE6, nested tables inherit the justification of the table above it (the old behavior was to assume left justification). Unfortunately, there's no way to "fix" that on the client side. It appears that this is Yet Another item that our Fearless Leader will have to address if he so chooses.

    I have noticed that as well, with IE6 (I think IE should stop being produced though, cause of all the bugs it contains unfortunately,) so I just use Opera now more often instead, and thus don't have to worry about that problem. Perhaps you could use something other than IE? Just another idea.

      I don't think that IE's behavior is a bug, in fact. IIRC, the W3 spec does not specify the behavior of nested tables. To be honest, I think IE6's behavior makes more sense: tables (and likely other elements, though I have not verified that) inherit attributes from their parents unless otherwise specified.

      Also, I doubt it is a bug since the XHTML 1.0 spec was written by members of the W3C HTML working group, which includes at least two people from Microsoft.
