So, we don't really define how border-spacing affects the percentage-sized
table cells in a fixed-size table. Apparently it's subtracted out of the
available space for both width (and height) in FF and Opera, but only for
width in WebKit. Don't know about IE.

Probably this should be defined and tested somewhere. :) CSS2.1 doesn't
define height calculations for cells, but it does define widths.
