Arron,

[RC6]
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20110323/html4/table-columns-example-001.htm


col { border-style: none solid }
table { border-style: hidden; border-collapse: collapse; }
is rendered correctly in Chrome 15.0.874.120 and Konqueror 4.7.3 (and
most likely in Safari 5.1.2 as well).

But, the thing is, rules="cols" for those browsers is not correctly
rendered.

rules="cols": Rules will appear between columns only.
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/tables.html#adef-rules

So, strictly speaking, the tested CSS code is passed but the HTML code
(attribute specification rules="cols") used for comparison (and used as
expected result) is not rendered correctly.

What I'm trying to say is that the test supposes and postulates that
browsers render flawlessly and impeccably rules="cols" to begin with and
this is not the case.

In all fairness, this table-columns-example-001 testcase currently does
not prove that Chrome 15.0.874.120 and Konqueror 4.7.3 fail to correctly
render the following CSS code:
col { border-style: none solid }
table { border-style: hidden; border-collapse: collapse; }

regards, Gérard
