[RC6] overflow-applies-to-013 : overflow does *not* apply to table elements

There was a recent discussion in www-style [1] and it was established
that table elements are not containers and can not be applied overflow.

Therefore, the overflow-applies-to-013 testcase is incorrect and Opera
11.52 really passes that test.

If 'overflow' was applying to [table-layout: fixed with a non-auto
width] table elements, then, I think, we should be testing not just
'hidden' value but 'scroll' and 'auto' as well.

[1] Re: `overflow: hidden` on tables for border rounding doesn't seem to
be supported by the standard
