Dear fellow www-style colleagues,

http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/css21testsuite/overflow-applies-to-007a.xht

Is this test correct?

All browsers are failing this test, as coded. So, am I missing something
here?

----------

I believe this test

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/nightly-unstable/html4/overflow-applies-to-007.htm

to be imprecise (or not best) as there is no width set to the table-cell
element. Am I wrong?

(Additionally, height: 5em on the table element is extraneous, unneeded,
unnecessary but that's not my nr 1 issue with that test.)

Gérard
P.S.: I've read the bug reports
