Not necessarily.  There's some bad markup. "padding-left: 100" is 
meaningless, there is no unit given.  In the table, the requested width 
of the first column is "100," again with no units, and the second cell 
has no requested width, which is probably causing that "padding-left: 
25%" to be taking 25% of zero, which may or may not be a bug, I'd have 
to read the CSS box model spec closely to be sure.

Either way, it's not a bug in Gecko that is causing the apparently 
incorrect rendering.  It's a faulty assumption about how lists are 
rendered that's causing unexpected but correct results.  See my other 
post. :)
