Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Website 2.5.0 Inconsistent Rendering

It's hard to sort out nested layout tables by reading the code.  I suggest
you take one of the generated HTML files and start adding border properties
to tables and cells.  At some point it should become clear which table cell
is compacted, and then maybe you can trace backward to see where it's coming

I cheated and opened one of your files in Dreamweaver, which shows table
boundaries. The culprit seems to be:

<td width="100%">
  <img src="i/spacer.gif" />

This appears just after the cell containing the body text, and forces the
body text into a smaller area.  I can't say where it is coming from, though.
