Really? Not for headings? Lists? Other paragraphs?

And note that NSN treats embedded tables exactly the same as MSIE.

The point is that the paragraph can not wrap above the table if the
table tag precedes the paragraph.

Do you have some specific reason for this? IMG is an inline element and
as such can appear anywhere, even in the middle <IMG
SRC="someimage.png"> of a line or the end of a paragraph. So by not
enclosing IMG in another element, you automatically include it in a
preceding unclosed element, such as a paragraph.

If an author (not you, obviously) wants an image to appear flush right
following a specific word<IMG SRC="img_on_the_right.png" ALIGN=right>
in a paragraph, that's doable. The same option is needed for a table,
which in many ways is more akin to an image than a paragraph. In real
life it's doable with both NSN and MSIE, yet it is proscribed by the
HTML spec.
