Table with rowspan=x in the first row does not get rendered correctly


Please refer to the images below.
The table with a vertical merge (rowspan) in the first row gets rendered incorrectly in the page view, while it renders ok in the edit view

Edit view:


Page view:


To reproduce just create a table on a page like shown in the Edit View, then save the page and the table will be rendered as shown on the Page view. As I see, this is because in the page view Confluence wrongly attaches the header (thead) to the top row of the table, while the header is actually on the left column. So the rowspan becomes split between the thead row and the next tbody row (which does not seem to be valid html)


This is observed on Atlassian Confluence 7.10.2 (server)

Looks like an Atlassian defect. Any ideas
