This page defines wrong widths for some cells and it's why there is an
overlay. For example it's difficult to display in a table 3 cells that match
108 + 100% + 80%
I know that some browsers has complex algorithms which transform
invalid sized attributes. We cannot do that in an incremental environment
(Amaya is mainly an editor an develops incremental algorithms to redisplay
partial changes). More, I guess it's not good idea to encourage authors to
maintain these kind of errors.
