    CSS and tables

    I just started learning CSS, and I'm trying to use it set the border colors for tables.

    This is what I'm using...

    <style type="text/css">
    table {
    background-image: url('background2.png');
    border-color: #333333;
    }

    td.title {
    border-color: #666666;
    }

    td.ub {
    border-color: #333333;
    background-color: #666666;
    }
    </style>

    The problem is, only the bottom and right parts of the borders change colors. The top and left are black.

    Also, can CSS not be used for <tr> elements? Or does it work differently for <tr> or something....? I get no results at all when I try to change the border color for <tr> using the same code as above (which half-works for <td>) and moving the class attribute, of course.
    And I'm using IE6.0, if it matters.

    Thanks.

    Try this...

    Code:
    table {
    background-image: url('background2.png');
    border: solid collapse 1px #333;
    }
    CSS should work for any HTML element, including TR. Also, it will always matter what browser you're using since CSS is interpreted by the browser. I should mention that IE is probably the worst browser you could design a site in, as if it works in IE it's unlikely to work in any other browser (Netscape, Firefox, Mozilla or Opera).
