I've distilled down the tag soup to this case:

<table>
        <tr>
                <td>
                        This cell causes problems.
			Removing it removes the problem.
                </td>
                <td>
                        <form method=post action="...">
                </td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
                <!-- Uncommenting this removes the problem.
                <td>
                        This cell causes problems.
                </td>
                -->
                <td>
                        <input type="submit" value="subscribe">
                        </form>
                </td>
                <!-- Uncommenting this has no effect.
                <td>
                        This cell causes problems.
                </td>
                -->
        </tr>
</table>
