Hi,

What is the correct way for a browser to render something like:

	<tr><td>hello</td><td>there<br></td></tr>

The reason I ask is that the 2b6 Netscape Navigator has suddenly 
changed the way it is rendered from a single line to a line with 
another blank underneath.

This meant that the various tables that took advantage of that in 
order to still maintain lines for non-table browsers now look 
horrendous, as the text does not align correctly (yes valign=top will 
do so, but that isn't the point!).

So what should the rendering be?
The draft doesn't seem to give a conclusion either way.

C.
