[Bug 17134] New: Strange max row height for non-auto-height table rows


           Summary: Strange max row height for non-auto-height table rows
           Product: CSS
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CSS Level 2

17.5.3 (Table height algorithms) says:

  # The height of a 'table-row' element's box is calculated once
  # the user agent has all the cells in the row available: it is
  # the maximum of the row's computed 'height', the computed
  # 'height' of each cell in the row, and the minimum height (MIN)
  # required by the cells.

This is a little surprising.  MIN includes cell borders and padding, whereas
the computed 'height' of each cell doesn't.  Is this intentional?

(See also Bug 15461 and Bug 15462 for other issues with this paragraph in the
case of auto-height table rows.)

Bug 15460 concerns what seems to be the analogous issue for how cells in the
first row determine the column widths.
