Slightly less reduced test case to show impact of doctype 

On Firefox this page works because <div><nobr></div> closes nobr. On IE7 it
does not close but the page works since nobr does not affect content of tables.
Without DOCTYPE WebKit defaults to quirks mode which matches IE behavior and
the page works too. However the Transitional DOCTYPE on the page throws WebKit
to almost-standards mode.

We could fix this by adopting Firefox nobr close behavior but that does not
match either IE or current HTML5 draft so it does not sound very appealing.
Adopting IE behavior in almost-standards mode sounds like a bad idea too. I
think this could be better fixed in Google side.
