I wish I could help here.

Rebecca,

I submitted this test

http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/nightly-unstable/html4/anonymous-table-box-width-001.htm

which is based on:

Issue 172: table-caption content overflows
http://wiki.csswg.org/spec/css2.1#issue-172

[CSS21] table-caption width
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2010Sep/0186.html

and such test has *not* been reviewed or approved yet:

http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/testcase/anonymous-table-box-width-001/name/anonymous-table-box-width-001/

and the CSS2.1 spec has not been formally clarified yet.

The Errata

http://www.w3.org/Style/css2-updates/REC-CSS2-20110607-errata.html

makes no mention of issue 172 or of
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2010Sep/0186.html

-------

Overall, the Errata

http://www.w3.org/Style/css2-updates/REC-CSS2-20110607-errata.html

often seems to me to be precise editorial tuning. On the other hand, some
spec-related issues I brought, backed up by tests, are still not addressed
in such errata.

Eg
[CSS21] Overconstrained fixed table layout
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2013Jan/0093.html
and
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2013Jan/0094.html
list 9 non-reviewed-yet tests.
