Hi, 

there is nothing wrong with KHTML, in fact, its a bug in IE that you expose 
here and not in khtml. its funny to see that other webbrowsers are buggy. 

the reason is the following CSS rule: 

   TD { display : block; }

You get what you deserve here. if you wouldn`t overwrite the display style 
of TD (which is display: table-cell actually), everything would be right. 

Dirk
-------------------------------------------------

Dirk, do you have something to add here?

|   Somewhat related, I've noticed that in Windows IE, if
|   an element has display:inline and it has children that
|   are display:block, the parent element behaves as an
|   inline element, whereas mozilla and Mac IE5 do not
|   display the block child of an inline element as a
|   child since inline elements should not have
|   block-level children.  Is this a use case for
|   block-inside?

probably, yes.
Do you have ready testcase somewhere online?
