The reason is that MSIE (I tested version 6 and 7) accept TABLE in P, regardless of whether it is in Quirks-Mode or in Standards-Mode. Even Firefox-Opera-Safari (FirOpSa) allow TABLE inside P - allthough they only do so when in Quirks-Mode.

When would it ever make sense to do this though? Surely you would never 
want to put a table inside a paragraph, because tables and paragraphs 
are two totally different things. I also can’t see why you would put a 
paragraph inside a paragraph—surely it should either just be one 
paragraph, or be two completely separate paragraphs.
