Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-tables-3] Can we simplify empty-cells:hide?

> There should be a way to show <tr> background by using visibility:hidden.

I am not so sure how that is actually useful. The point is that we are going to need to sacrifice some things with tables because they cannot possibly work like the rest of css. What we are going to sacrifice is the question. I would argue having the backgrounds of the tr rendered on the cells instead of being clipped to the cells makes more sense because it then "sticks" to the cell, for instance if you transform it:

But that, really, is another question entirely. You are right it would be necessary to resolve this question first. If we want to render on the TR/TBODY/COL/COLGROUP and clip based on the table layout instead of letting each cell draw things for themselves, then we cannot merge empty-cells:hidden and visiblity:hidden either.
