    is it possible to change the borders in a table to those small dot's you see quite frequently, without using css?

    and if so... how would i get them to only show on the left hand side of a table?

    cheers,
    Raynor

    Without using CSS it's impractically doable. CSS is by far the easiest way:
    Code:
    <table style="border-left:1px dashed color">

    see this post. Apparently some posts were lost that were made during the server move.

    Well in that case, here's my post again

    You can do dotted borders without css like this:

    Code:
    <table cellpadding="1" cellspacing="0" border="0" background="/images/checker.gif"><tr><td>
    <table cellpadding="10" cellspacing="0" border="0" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><tr><td>
        <p>Here's the content of your table</p>
    </td></tr></table>
    </td></tr></table>
    or, if you just want dots on the left, you can do something like this:

    Code:
    <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
      <tr>
        <td background="/images/checker.gif">
          <mg src="spacer.gif" width="1" height="1" border="0"><br>
        </td>
        <td>
          <p>Content goes here</p>
        </td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    As you can see at the link below, with simple background images and some creative table work, the possibilities are endless:

    You can add a dotted line as a table border by faking it...

    Basically, create an image of the dot and save it as a gif. Put the image in a table clumn that you want to be the 'border'. Set the columns width to the same size as the image. Finally, make the image also the background image of the cell.

    This is the way I have done this on one of my sites. See it at http://www.rocketreferrals.com

    That's exactly what the example above says to do
