Fortunately I clearly don’t have any readers who are very interested in
table-cell, because if I had, they’d have torn me to pieces on my post about how it does work in IE.
Because it doesn’t.
If I modify my example so that the first cell doesn’t have a set width and contains multiple lines of text, the other cells which are meant to be on the same row are clearly moved down instead of staying where they are. See what I mean here.
I apologise and hold myself up as a victim of IE’s crapness.
