[TYPO3-english] css_styled_content: renderMethod

Hi There.


With V4.2 of typo3 (cant go further back..) the rendering of images was
changed form table-layout to pure css.

For this, multiple renderMethods have been introduced.

in 4.2: dl, ul, div, default dl
in 4.3 - 4.6: dl, ul, div, simple default dl
in 4.7: singleNoCaption, noCaption, singleCaption, splitCaption,
globalCaption 	default singleNoCaption

singleCaption, captionSplit, globalCaption is table with tables in it.

Why was this rendering changed so mutch? This leads to invalid code, at
least some warnings: "table lacks summary attribute"

I did not really notice this change... But I was so glad of getting rid
of the table Rendering to pure CSS - is this a step back to the old
tables we had in 3.8?

Can this behavoir changed back to V4.3 without using the "old" templates?

I am sure the CSS-Team had good reason, but I'd like to understand this.

Thank you for your comment on this issue,
