Description PFudd 2009-02-16 02:00:18 UTC
On this page (, there's a long table of products, with a number of columns containing their properties.  At the top of the table, there are headers with buttons that allow for sorting of the table based on the column you select.

If you press one of those buttons (the one for "Smart Antenna") for instance, you'd expect to see the same table, sorted by the contents of that column.

It does produce a table, but it's not sorted by anything obvious, and the table structure starts to break down part way down the page (too many/not enough columns, wrong data in columns, etc).  

It looks like the code for sorting tables can't handle this table, and is dying badly.

Tweaking summary to be more generic: AFAICT, it's the usage of rowspan (cells spanning multiple rows) that causes the table to be messed up.

I also faced that bug.
It produced an ugly table :

It would be very useful to correct the bug.

Thank you very much,
