Different browsers show tags slightly different. We have seen how the application developer has used browser sniffing to write different tags to fulfill a design requirement. In this case it was to fit within a column 130 pixels wide.
It is possible to argue that the solution above was the only way in early browsers to layout properly. However, this particular code is lifted from a website that was developed in early 2003, so this clearly constitutes a bad habit we must break.
