nested form/table causes extra whitespace

When nesting a form wholy inside a cell certain browsers includes extra white space at the end of the form. This would appear to be a bug.

Wouldn't this just be the bottom margin of the form element or block level elements inside it?

As a 'bug' I think this is bogus, just brush up on your CSS and remove the margin in your stylesheet. Don't expect browsers' internal stylesheets to all be the same. Some people use margins in certain places whilst others use padding. That's what CSS is all about :)

set css for forms as display:inline;

Thanks Joe, your hint works!
In IE6 it was enough to set margin and padding styles to zero, but problem returned with IE7 (with MS every release is a bug...), and I found the only solution to set display:inline.
