Hi, François:

For me, it is clear that we forgot to actually follow the resolution.
So +1 to your proposal.

Thank you for dealing with this.

Best regards,

Nacho

> When it's "just td", TABLES_LAYOUT-2 gets triggered when a table features

>
>  <table>
>  <tr>
>   <th>Header</th>
>   <td>Data</td>

>  "RESOLUTION: in tables layout, we should say td or th not just td, and
> close issue-175."

> Entry number: ED-3
> Creation date: 02 September 2011
> Section referred to: 3.23 TABLES_LAYOUT
>
> Description of the problem
>  The TABLES_LAYOUT test checks table cells. In HTML, table cells may be
> represented as "th" or "td" elements. The current wording suggests to take
> only "td" elements into account. This is not the intent of the group.
>
> Correction
>  The TABLES_LAYOUT test should rather read:
>  [[
>  For each table element:
>  If it contains at most one tr element, FAIL
>  If no tr element contains more than one td or th element, FAIL
>  For each nested td or th element:
>   If the element contains only an image (or equivalent object) whose actual
> dimensions are 2x2 or less, FAIL
>  ]]
> ----
>
> What do you think?
>
> Unless I hear objections by end of next week (9 September 2011), I will
> incorporate this erratum in the errata of the mobileOK Basic Tests
> specification.

> Thanks,
