Sylvain, I replied in bug 409470. There is nothing in the spec that
indicates that rules="all" should *force* or should trigger
border-collapse: collapse model. IE 8 rendering is illogical. If
border-collapse: separate is the default browser declaration, then why
declaring rules="all" should switch the border-collapse? It's not
coherent.

> rules="all" certainly implies border-collapse:collapse in Gecko.

Boris, just visit bug 151557. You +sr yourself attachment 139525: Ian
Hixie Hickson and David Baron and yourself all agreed on

table[rules]:not([rules="all"]) {border-collapse:collapse;}

regards, Gérard
