Table column widths with colspans involved #685
Hey WP-Team! This issue is low priority for us, as I have found a simple workaround. But nonetheless maybe you want to investigate or declare this as expected behaviour!
Whenever there is content in a cell with colspan the size of the colspan'ed element influences the width of the columns in an unexpected/unwanted way. On the left is chrome; on the right the output from WP.
It seems that while the layout is done the colspan is not taking into consideration. Giving WP a hint in terms of a style="width:1px" circumvents the issue.
What do you think?

True story: you can read and implement a quite complicated algorithm, use it for years, and then get an issue related to this algorithm. You can fix the code, carefully following the algorithm, but still get a bad rendering. Why? Because the algorithm is wrong. Of course, as it's written by David Baron, it can't be that wrong: there's actually a red ISSUE block telling that "The way this describes distribution of widths from column-spanning cells is wrong" and that I "should refer to the rules for distributing excess width to columns for intrinsic width calculation". I did. Guess what: it works. Fix Kozea#685.
