Interesting, I didn't actually try anything with right/left. It would be even more interesting to see what would happen there if floats are allowed into table container box...

Thanks

For what it's worth, Mozilla implements six values of the
'caption-side' property: 'top', 'bottom', 'left', 'right',
'top-outside', and 'bottom-outside'.  The last two are intended to
match what we had implemented for CSS 2.0, which was changed in CSS
2.1 (and which are briefly described in CSS 2.1).  You may find some
significant differences between them in terms of the margin
collapsing behavior and the behavior for wrapping around floats.

I'll try to look at your message in more detail later.
