Dreamweaver and cell borders

How do I border individual cells?

This was no problem when I used Frontpage but I can't figure it out with DW. I could manually code each cell but then having DW is pointless. I am obviously missing something quite simple!

Insert a table. Go to the Property Inspector and change the border value and the border colour to whatever you want. This will give all cells a border.

If you only want to give one cell a border, for example, follow the above example and make the border colour the same as the background colour. Then go to the cell you want a border on and change the border colour to the colour you want.

It is straight forward as Stever suggests, the default is no border, however watch DW for putting in a no border="0", if you change your mind after putting in a cell width for the border, as the code will not validate.

btw, worth getting the books for the version of dreamweaver and giving them a quick once over, covers the basics, if this is not possible, the lessons (tutorials) in HELP, cover a reasonable amount of the basics.

For a beginner, there's nothing finer than The Missing Manual.
Once you finish with that, keep it for reference, but buy The Dreamweaver Bible. Excellent reference of a ton of stuff. I can't recommend it enough.

But don't forget to hand code. There are times when it's easier to just go in and hand code it, because DW has a hard time with certain things here and there.

I started using CSS for all table/cell borders. I get better control over the width and printability of each cell.

Thanks everyone.

I have started to use CSS now as I find it easier than the manual method - it just took me a while to find it! The DW studio MX manual is about as much use as a, well you know!
