17.6.2 The collapsing border model

     UAs must compute an initial left and right border width
     for the table by examining the first and last cells in
     the first row of the table. The left border width of the
     table is half of the first cell's collapsed left border,
     and the right border width of the table is half of the
     last cell's collapsed right border. If subsequent rows
     have larger collapsed left and right borders, then any
     excess spills into the margin area of the table.


I think this text is too restrictive. CSS 2.1 should allow a
UA to consider all rows and make the table border wide enough
to not cause any border to spill into the margin area.

Would it be possible to make the current text a minimum
requirement but allow UAs to consider more than one row?


Thanks,
Mats Palmgren
