The table that I used for this example included the border
attribute to create a border. If you apply table borders using CSS,
they will override the border attribute, so you don't need to

the content inside a cell. By default, many browsers draw tables with a cell padding of
two pixels. You can add more space by adding the cellpadding attribute to the <table>
