Hello Arron,

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20110323/html4/table-visual-layout-002.htm

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/nightly-unstable/html4/table-visual-layout-002.htm

The test is about testing internal table elements not rendering margins.
As coded and as worded, the test can not fail. Background applied on
table-cell can only affect content and padding; margins, if/when they
apply, are painted by the parent's background (here, transparent;
therefore white).

A normal tester will assume a pass result if there is a gap between
black square and blue square when, in reality, it should be a fail.

Actual
------

"Test passes if the boxes below are the same width."


Proposed replacement
--------------------

"Test passes if the black square is touching the blue square; there must
be no gap, no space between the blue square and the black square."

regards, Gérard
