Table Bug in IE!

Table Bug in IE!
In IE, about 1 out of 5 times rowspan won't work in a table cell. I don't
know if this factors into it, but there's also a table in each cell. For
example, the code below (with data in it of course; left blank here)...

<table>
<tr>
<td rowspan="2"><table><tr><td> </td></tr></table></td>
<td rowspan="2"><table><tr><td> </td></tr></table></td>
<td><table><tr><td> </td></tr></table></td>
</tr>
<tr><td><table><tr><td> </td></tr></table></td></tr>
</table>

1 out of 5 times (when I visit website or refresh it), rowspan won't work
and the bottom row will not be in the right spot.

If there are errors in the above code, that's because I just now typed it
out. The code on my intranet website for a client is 100% validated code by
validator.w3.org. I can refresh the website on FIREFOX and OPERA web
browser, and it shows PERFECTLY a hundred times. On IE, I'll refresh and it
won't work about every 3-5 times or so.

Things like this should be a top priority because the whole point of web
browsers are to show web pages (especially show standards compliant code
well!). And this message probably won't even be addressed because IE doesn't
have a bug report site anymore (after IE Beta was done).

Please fix this or let me know if an IE workaround. I'm sure I can figure
out a workaround, but this should be something to fix in the next build.

Thanks.

Re: Table Bug in IE!
Hi,

should be <tr><td rowspan="5"><table><tr><td> </td></tr></table></td></tr>


sorry, you can't count. The markup validators don't pick up shrinkwrap
errors.

Compare the Computed markup from IE and FX browsers. You will see that FX
and O browsers fill in the gaps about your mistakes.

Regards.
