Some table cells may not be displayed in Internet Explorer 8 and in Internet Explorer 9 when the table contains several columns that contain different colspan attributes

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a webpage that contains a table.
  • The table has several columns, and the columns contain different colspan attributes.
  • The colspan attributes contain tables that have the "table-layout: fixed" style attribute. 
  • You use Windows Internet Explorer 8 or Windows Internet Explorer 9 to open the webpage.
In this scenario, the width of the columns is calculated incorrectly. Therefore, some cells are moved out of the visible area and cannot not be displayed.

  • This issue occurs when you use Internet Explorer 8 Quirks mode and Internet Explorer 9 Standards mode.
  • The issue does not occur when you use Internet Explorer 8 Standards mode.
