Strange and annoying problem with {NOBR}

I wrote a web app about 10 years ago which used Javascript to pop up a hidden table when an input field gets focus. Each cell in the table contains a checkbox and text which are surrounded by a NOBR to keep them together.

Recently users with IE8 complained that the first cell is not visible when the table pops up. After MUCH trial and error I narrowed it down to the NOBR tag. I replaced it with a SPAN with style set to white-space : nowrap and this seems to solve the problem :-/
