           Summary: WebKit ignores the nowrap on <td nowrap="nowrap">, if
                    an absolute width is specified
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 11

          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2

None of the text inside the tables should wrap.

The text inside the second table *does* wrap, for no clear reason.

In both cases, there is a <td nowrap="nowrap">.

In the first table, that gives the descendant div a computed "white-space" of "nowrap". But in the second table, it does not, for some reason. The only difference is that the second table has an explicit width on its <td> element (which in this example is quite large, so it's not causing wrapping by being the thing that constrains the width).

Devtools shows me that this nowrap="nowrap" behavior involves the following UA stylesheet rule:
> td[Attributes Style] {
>     white-space: -webkit-nowrap;
> }

And apparently -webkit-nowrap has some magic "width" dependence, or something...? not sure. Anyway, Firefox and Edge are consistent on this -- they render both tables with no line wrapping.

Chrome/Blink matches WebKit, for now, though I reported this in their bug tracker as https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=821915
