Summary0000504: Nested table alignment
DescriptionI thought this one had been cleared a long time ago, but it's either back again or still there.

A table inside a table cell with centre alignment (e.g. a table header) is not centered but left aligned. Within the table, the contents of data cells are centered when they should be left aligned. If the nested table cell contains an unordered list then the bullets are left aligned but the text of list items is centered. This probably applied to oiredered lists too but I haven't tried them.

It looks like this might be specific to table header cells <th> as using a data cell plus a center tag works fine. I haven't tried align attributes yet.

An example bit of html would be useful

Try this:
<html><head><title>Nested Table example</title></head>
<table width=500 border=1><tr><th>This is a header cell in the outer table.
  <table border=1><tr><td width=300>This table should be centered within the outer table.
This text should be left aligned.

Another line
  • List item 1

  • List item 2 longer
