Default table borders

I wonder if anyone can help.

Say you have a table containing numerous columns and rows, how can you make it so that borders only appear on the right and left outer edge of the table, not the top or bottom or the cells contained within the table.

Hi there,

You can use the CSS border property for that, like this:

<table style="border-left: 2px solid red; border-right: 3px solid green;">

This adds a 2 pixel red border to the left of the table, and a 3 px green border to the right. Similarly, you can also set border-top and border-bottom, and obviously, you can change stuff like color, size etc.

Does this help?
