Ian,

while you are on it, could you also look how row- and colspans should be 
treated. Its hard for me to admit it, but I like the way IE6 renders the 
following snippet.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>colspan background</title>
</head>
<body>
<table>
<colgroup>
<col style="background-color:red">
<col style="background-color:blue">
<col style="background-color:green">
</colgroup>
<tr><td>r1c1</td><td>r1c2</td><td>r1c3</td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="2">r1c1r1c2</td><td>r1c3</td></tr>
<tr><td>r1c1</td><td colspan="2">r1c2r1c3</td></tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>
