getOffsetParent issue with nested tables

Reported by Aaron Newton | September 2nd, 2008 @ 08:22 PM | in 1.3.1 (closed)

If you have a table2 inside a table1, FF3 (perhaps others) will report that table2.offsetParent is the td containing it:

    td   << FF3 says this is offsetParent, even if pos == static

I suppose this means that we need to test, in FF3, that element.offsetParent is indeed positioned and, if it isn't, go through the same loop that IE uses. Something like:

	getOffsetParent: function(){
		var element = this;
		if (isBody(element)) return null;
		//here's the changed line:
		if (!Browser.Engine.trident && styleString(element.offsetParent, 'position') != 'static') return element.offsetParent;
		while ((element = element.parentNode) && !isBody(element)){
			if (styleString(element, 'position') != 'static') return element;
		return null;
