[thelist] table borders

You can get a solid line of any color using two nested tables.
The outer one has a background color of the "border" color. The inner
table /rows/ specify the cell color. The cellspacing of the inner row
determines how wide the border is.

I tested this in IE & Netscape, Mac & PC though I remember using this as
base code once where there was a problem. Can't remember what it was

Try this in a page:
<body bgcolor="#ffffff">

<table cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 border=0 bgcolor="#C2C297">

<table cellpadding=4 cellspacing=1 border=0>
<tr bgcolor="#ffffff">
 <td>This </td>
 <td>works </td>
 <td>in </td>
 <td>both </td>
<tr bgcolor="#ffffff">
 <td>Remember, </td>
 <td>"outer </td>
 <td>table, </td>
 <td>inner  </td>
 <td>row." </td>



(I didn't come up with this myself. I found it somewhere.)
