Setting the Border Style and Color of a Table

The border properties modify the appearance of the border that surrounds the outside of the table. However, some browsers display this information in different ways. For example, some browsers use the color and not the style of the border properties to define all other borders inside the table, unless that color has been previously defined.

For example, if you choose a red, dotted border for your table, the preview pane displays the outer edge of the table as a red, dotted border. All table cells inside the table have a red, solid border, unless the border properties for Body and Header (if applicable) are also defined. Not all browsers display the table the same way, so verify the results in multiple browsers when defining the table border and style.
