box sizes still miscalculated

The included file illustrates that there still is difficulty calculating 
box dimensions.....
1] The contents of the cells wrap unnecessarily. There is enough 
available width that no forced wrapping is necessary. 
2] The exterior box border is drawn wide enough to include contents
but the colored background for the th element is at the width of the
actual contents....
From this i suspect order of calculation and rendering is messed up
in some way ... if the size used by the frame rendering was used to
determine th and td width  hilite would be correct and no wrap done
i think somehow the th/td width use the default and not the calculated
value !!!!     this is nice puzzle for the math type.... --
