Visual web browsers such as Netscape and MSIE render table borders with a three-dimensional appearance. They do this by making the top and left borders lighter than the bottom right borders, This makes the table look like it is partly under a light source with and partly in shadow. If you visualize a light source above and to the left of the table it's easier to remember which borders are light and which are dark.
We set the light and dark borders with
<TABLE BORDER=10 BORDERCOLORLIGHT=YELLOW BORDERCOLORDARK=BLUE> <TR> <TD>blah blah blah</TD> <TD>yeah yeah yeah</TD> </TR> <TR> <TD>whatever whatever</TD> <TD>right on!</TD> </TR> </TABLE>
which gives us this table:
|blah blah blah||yeah yeah yeah|
|whatever whatever||right on!|
