"Inserting a form on a page would often break the pixel-perfect design by
pushing things around. That was caused by the formís margins, but I didnít know
that. So to prevent this I used to insert the formís start and end tags between
table rows." -

I think we should just change the parser to not foster parent forms, to match
old Gecko and WebKit (and not break oldschool pixel-perfect designs with 1em
gaps whitespace here and there).
