These tests make invalid assumptions about the UA style sheet; in
particular that it does not have the rule:
  table { border-collapse: separate }

However, this rule is recommended in HTML5:
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/rendering.html#margins-and-padding
was needed in older versions of CSS2 back when the initial value was
'collapse':
http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-CSS2-19980512/tables.html#borders
and it may be needed for Web-compatibility.

This test should be removed.
