Subject: [thelist] table borders

: I can't figure out a way to get odd/even row colors (using
: class attribute on <tr>, not on <td>), 1px solid color cell
: borders (css puts border in each cell, for an overall appearance
: of 2px, and border="1" attribute isn't solid) and borders that
: show even if a <td> is empty of data.

You can't figure out which part:
a) how to get odd/even row colours using class attributes on the <tr>?
b) how to get only 1px solid cell borders?
c) borders that show even if the <td> is empty?

a) <tr style="background-color: #cccccc;">
        <td> </td>
works for me

b) <table style="border-collapse: collapse;">
should collapse the table cell borders for you

c) AFAIK, You need to put something in the table data cell, even if it's
only a space.
