Column lines only in a td? - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Is it possible to have a table and display column lines of the table only? To try and clarify: A normal table with a border would look (roughly) like this: ______________________ |_______|______|______| |_______|______|______| Since every other row is in blue, the client is asking for column lines only, similar to: | | | | | | | | | | | | Any hints on how this is possible would be greatly appreciated.

    Default Column lines only in a td?

    Is it possible to have a table and display column lines of the table
    only?

    To try and clarify:
    A normal table with a border would look (roughly) like this:

    ______________________
    |_______|______|______|
    |_______|______|______|


    Since every other row is in blue, the client is asking for column
    lines only, similar to:


    | | | |
    | | | |
    | | | |

    Any hints on how this is possible would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Ed

    CSS is by far the easiest way to achieve this. Even if you don't know
    CSS if you have DW MX you can do this easily via the css panel.

    It isn't easily possible.

    You could try putting a single pixel gif at the left of each cell, and
    changing its height property.
