I've got a question about cell heights and vertical alignment of text.
In following example there's a table with 1 row, 2 cells.
The font size of the text in the first cell is smaller than the second cell.
Both texts are aligned to the bottom of the cell.

I get unexpected results:
The 2 cells have a different height. I'd expect that all cells of a row would have the same height?
    Because of this the texts are not bottom aligned.

Maybe I'm doing this the wrong way? Can anybody help me out on this?

kind regards,
Ivo Roefs
