Table Border Colors
In this section we'll look at setting the colors of table borders. First we'll look at setting the borders to a single color. In the
next page we'll look at setting the light and dark shades of the border.
The color of the table borders as a whole is set with the
BORDERCOLOR attribute of the
<TABLE ...> tag. For example, this code sets the border to red:
<TABLE BORDER=10 BORDERCOLOR=RED>
<TR> <TD>carrots</TD> <TD>garlic</TD> </TR>
<TR> <TD>celery</TD> <TD>onions</TD> </TR>
|carrots ||garlic |
|celery ||onions |
Netscape and MSIE have very different ways of rendering
BORDERCOLOR. Netscape maintains the 3-D appearance. MSIE renders all borders as the same color, making the border appear flat. MSIE also sets the color of the inner borders.
