Tables and relative position

Mozilla doesn't honour a position: relative on a table, which can therefore never serve as a container for absolutely positioned elements. This is a deliberate choice, and not a bug, oddly.

On the other hand, Explorer Mac behaves as if every table has a position: relative. It always positions absolute layers in the table relative to the table, even if they should be positioned relative to the browser window.
