As I look at this more I realize that you didn't set cellpadding,
cellspacing border attributes in the table tag and align and valign tags in
the td/tr tags.  This can also makes it very difficult for this to render
correctly because different browsers have different defaults.

Subject: overlapped span


Hi,

    I was trying to create different kind of html tests, that includes
    really incorrect html for testing a browser. And I got the following,
    and it appears that neither Netscape nor MSIE can render this html
    correctly.

<html><body>
<table><tr><td>left<br>up</td>
           <td rowspan=2>row<br>span<br>row<br>span<br></td></tr>
       <tr><td colspan=2>col span</td></tr>
</table>
</body></html>

    So, I got sort of technical question - how a browser should handle 
    this cases ? I mean is there any well-known algorithm for doing this ?
    I didn't try Amaya, though.

So, if you can give some help or suggestions - I would really
appreciate it.

Thanx,
    Pawel.
