    here's an easy question that's unfortunately stumping me:
    how do you create a table or cell with a fine/slim border?
    Using www.Site73.com for an example, how dow you generate the light-grey borders used around the boxes on the home page? I've looked at a dozen of sites that do this but I'm having a hard time figuring it out.
    thanks!

    like the
    <table border=0>
    or
    <table border=1>
    kind of things?
    I am a 13 year old graphics designer. I would love to make anyone who requests a logo for a price that we can discuss. I have taught myself how to make graphics. I made the winning entry for WebScalpel.com.

    no, not exactly. The basic "border=1" or "2" doesn't look sharp enough.
    It's a bit too thick and has a raised-look to it, almost 3d. I'm looking for a thin, flat border. if you look at www.site73.com, you can't recreate thoses borders using the "border=" script (at least I can't).
    let me know if you find anything, thanks!

    <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="border-collapse: collapse" bordercolor="#666699" width="660" height="236" bgcolor="#111111">


    Thats the exact code I use. Try that.

    Actually, the way the pros do it is this:
    Code:
    <table cellpadding="1" cellspacing="0" border="0"  bgcolor="#000000"><tr><td>
        <table cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" border="0" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><tr><td>
            <p>Content</p>
        </td></tr></table>
    </td></tr></table>
    Reason being it's backwards compatible (pre-CSS).

    Yeah but he dosnt want "5" for cell padding. "0" gives it the more flat look.
