Description Eric3 Knibbe 2006-11-06 10:31:54 PST
Facebook has a "create a profile badge" feature where it will generate code for a badge that can be inserted into another page. The items in the badge are rendered with tables, and the title for each chosen text field is enclosed in <th> tags. A while ago, these titles started showing up centered when they had previously been justified left, like the rest of the text; a side-by-side comparison between WebKit and Camino (which renders it correctly) can be found here: <http://www.calvin.edu/~enk3/temp/th-centering.png>. To see this for yourself, the best thing is to get a facebook profile up: 
-sign up for an account at facebook.com
-click on "My Profile" at the left
-click on "Create a Profile Badge" below your picture
Here you can create a badge composed of an image or JavaScript; the problem crops up when the latter is chosen. This may be a coding problem on facebook's part that just happens to render correctly in Camino; either way, I've reported the problem to them also.

Eric3, is the problem still replicable in the latest Webkit nightly?

As of Webkit r30191, as well as the current version of Safari (3.0.4 / 523.12.2), the text appears to be aligning correctly, as you can see on this <a href="http://knibbe.fmly.ca/badge.html">test page</a>.
