I received a very clever response from someone using css and 
javascript. I think that will work with the huge plus that all the 
control for applying styles correctly will be completely out of the 
hands of these programmers I work with. They won't have to do a thing!

Thanks for passing along the border-collapse property. I hadn't seen it 
before. That'll work perfectly (I hope).
