Box model of TDs

The box model of a td turns out to be unchangeable in Explorer (Win and Mac), Mozilla and Opera. Explorer Mac forces it into the traditional model, while the other browsers force it into the W3C box model.

Therefore you can't switch the box model of a td, something that is possible for any other element.

Explorer Windows, though, switches the TDs to the correct box model when you use table-layout: fixed. Unfortunately this does not work in the other browsers.

Test page. Workaround is included only for Explorer Windows.
