around the table - as there is supposed to be- however, in firefox the

I see <table width=640 bordercolor=#000000
but the HTML spec does not contain any bordercolor attribute.

In Netscape and Opera, I see borders that have a 'recessed' styling,
i.e. the top and left sides are dark while the bottom and right sides
are light.  In IE I see equally dark border all around.  I deduce that
this is default styling, as I don't see anything specified.

In general, you will get more consistent results if you:
  - Use a DOCTYPE.
  - Use a 'Strict' DOCTYPE.
  - Update your code to use CSS rather than style-related attributes on
the HTML tags.

Borders around tables? - doesn't matter

It don't matter now as I've made some adjustments and got rid of the border
after deciding I didn't really like it after all.
