Well, I believe I have tried to adjust cellspacing to 0 with no effect, but I may have done wrong. When viewing the link below, the box around the 2 sections contain breaks on the left/right side between rows. I just need to make these connect. On my other tables building my lists, the border dividing columns connect up and down do prob. Any ideas why I've spaces here?
Section Providing Spaced Borders
Thanks for any help.

Don't use PSPad's default HTML templates. They are obsolete. Use one of these templates.
Where did you try to set the cellspacing? The only presentational stuff I see is the style attributes on the table and the table cells?
I may as well mention that "cellspacing" is the HTML attribute name while "border-spacing" is the CSS property name.

Ya. Not all may have been in during ur view, as I been adding/removing things. Found out half my issue was just be being blonde and putting my CSS within a <script> tag instead of a <style> tag. Bleh.
I currently have 'border-collapse: collapse;' and borders connect as desired, EXCEPT the borders on the right side refuse to appear... Any idea?
EDIT: Odd... The right line no longer appears when set as 1px, but just fine as 2px. Works fine for me, but any idea why this is?
EDIT2: Oh, wow. I zoom in on my page and the 1px right lines toggle on/off at different zoom levels. It's not even a constant on after a certain level. Wierd.

I think that the borders are being averaged, so since there's no border on the table itself, a 1px border on the cell will average to just .5 and apparently that's rounded down at least part of the time. I do not recommend using "border-collapse" for this. And for that matter, having a single cell in every row is an improper use of a <table>.

Consider some simple markup:
If you give border styles to the section, and style those h2's, would that not be a lot simpler than using a table for entirely the wrong purpose?

Ya, I know the single cell thing. They've tossed around what they've really wanted of this in the end... As far as the averaging the 1px part, why is this only applying to border-right? And only after adding the border-collapse att? Borders applied to top, bottom, and left are not effected at all, and work w/ 1px from the start.
