Hi all

A viewer on our website alerted us to the following problem(?).

When using Internet Explorer 6 in standard compliance mode (i.e. the 
document has the DOCTYPE specified), it seems to align TABLE contents 
incorrectly. This happens when the TABLE is within another TABLE or DIV 
tag, and the surrounding tag uses a non-default alignment, for example 

You can find some examples at:

If we have read the W3C spec correctly the red table cells should be left 
aligned, for text that flows from left to right. Are we correct in this 

If we are, then there are some serious bugs in IE6.
