Adjusting the Space Within and Around a Table
After creating the external borders for your table, you can define the padding to specify the distance between the content and the borders within the table. This feature, which is enabled through CSS, is not supported by all browsers. View the output in several different browsers to verify your results.
You can also define the space around the table by adjusting the margin properties. Modifying the margin properties adjusts the space outside of the border area. For example, if you create a border for a table and you increase the size of the margins around the table, the border remains the same distance from the content of the table. However, the effective size of the table increases since there is more space between the table border and the other elements on the page.
