That is...as far as I can see in the messy code that they have... (probably generated....)

just set your borderColor equal to gray.  Those borders which look like Microsoft windows are images that they created.
<Table BorderColor=Gray>

I'm not sure if this works in Netscape, but I'm sure Netscape can do it also.

edemcs,
No, netscape will _not_ do bordercolor.

nimaig,
   EE is for people to exchange ideas, and your contribution is just as good as anyone else's.  I don't know how new you are to this, but I am, and I've come across some egotistical computer geeks like DreamMaster that get a little cocky sometimes.  Thanks for your input.

How would you react nimaig if you would just have been called egotistical???

Sorry if I offended anyone I can't see that I did....but there was no need for edemcs to respond to this the way he did...

Offcourse I let uron6342 decide what he wants...if I didn't I would have locked the question...

uron,
you might want to check nimags solution first.
It is a IE solution only, and does not work with netscape, the same problem as was with edemcs solution.

dreamaster was the first to answer and the only one who have given you a solution that (1) follows html standard and (2) works crossbrowser at the same time.

I think your'e all set :)

ok, i got this all worked out. in order for it to work in netscape with white cells, you need to wrap the inner table in an outer table with the background to gray and the cellspacing and cellpadding set to 0.

uron good you got it all worked out :)
This is almost teh same as in the first comment you got. It said (as I interpret it) to put  a table outside the table you were talking about. That would give you only the grey border around the table in both browsers, while the one you found in addition will give you bordercolor in between the cells as well :)
