HTML and CSS Reference
10.2.4.9. The bordercolor, bordercolorlight, and bordercolordark
Internet Explorer lets you alter the colors that make up an individual

The values for these three attributes override any values set for the con-
taining <table> or <tr> tag. Their values can be either RGB color values
or standard color names, both of which we describe fully in Appendix G .
10.2.4.10. The char and charoff attributes
Just as for the <tr> tag, you may use the char attribute with <th> or <td>

such as for decimal numbers. You need not include a value with char in
HTML. If you don't, the default character is language based: it's a period
in English, for example, and a comma in French. Include the char at-
tribute and a single letter as its value to specify a different alignment
Use the charoff attribute and an integer value to specify the offset to the
first occurrence of the alignment character in the cell. If a cell doesn't
include the alignment character, it should be shifted horizontally to end
at the alignment position.
The char and charoff attributes are standard in HTML 4 and XHTML but
are not yet supported by any of the popular browsers.

The headers attribute associates header cells with a data cell in the table.
The value of this attribute is a quote-enclosed list of names that have
been defined for various header cells using the id attribute. The headers
