Nope, not possible. You can try to set the border by

td {border-width: 2px;
border-style: solid;
border-color: #ffffff;}

but that won't work good enough in Netscape 4.

You can set the CELLSPACING by

table {border-spacing: 10px}

but it only works in Netscape 6, Opera 5 and Konqueror.

Anyway, you get the idea. Stick to good old CELLPADDING, CELLSPACING and 
BORDER and you won't have any problems.
