    Default Thin Tables

    Hi can someone please tell me how to create a thin table.
    I have tried using a few examples and it is my understanding that basically your table needs to have a cell padding of 3 and a border of 1.
    I must be missing something as my tables are still fat ! :(

    Can someone please point me in the right direction !
    I guess the only thing I haven't tried is imbedding more than one table into another table in order to get the desired effect.

    Basically my primary goal is to create a web page that has thin table lines around the main body of the web page.

    Thanks.

    Any clues where you got that idea?

    This code wil do what you want -

    <table bgcolor="#333" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1" border="0"
    width="500">
    <tr>
    <td><table bgcolor="#FFF" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1" border="0"
    width="500">
    <tr>
    <td>How's this?</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><img src="shim.gif" width="500" height="250" name="shim"></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </td>
    </tr>
