Řyvind,

It seems you added that testcase in the open issues wiki webpage[1],
under the section "Tests relying on non-normative behavior". I assure
that separated-borders-model-007 testcase is sound and correct.

"In this [border-collapse: separate] model, each cell has an individual
border."
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/tables.html#separated-borders

"all: Rules will appear between all rows and columns."
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/tables.html#adef-rules

This was discussed before, in many places...

At the www-style mailing list [2], in bug 409470 at connect IE beta
feedback, in bug 155507[2] at bugzilla.mozilla.org, in bug 43178[3] at
bugzilla.mozilla.org.

There is a consensus to implement rules as
table[rules]:not([rules="all"]) {border-collapse:collapse;} ,
assuming that border-collapse: separate is the initial value.
There is no contradication between rules="all" and 'border-collapse:
separate'.

> (Opera currently applies the horizontal rules to
> the <tr>s for instance

I even filed a bug on rules="none" [5] at Opera, years ago (bug 214944
in Opera BTS) and it's still happening in Opera 10.63.

There is no contradication between rules="none" and 'border-collapse:
separate'.
