Output a dynamic layout

My query outputs 3 across and 2 down with a next 6 underneath etc. I would like to add a few borders to the table cells. Much like corbis.com. I am snagged because the cells repeat so a style on one will repeat itself and I want to ad individual styles to each cell (6 of them)
I don't think I have explained this too well but this link will clear it up:

Can you post the code for what you have done so far. It's a bit hard to visualize where the problem is.

<table width="80%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
  <CFOUTPUT query="mavroslist" startrow="#start#" maxrows="#display#">
<CFIF (CurrentRow MOD 3) IS 1>
</TR>
<TR valign="baseline">
</CFIF>
               
<TD class="thumb1">
<div align="center">
#trim(item)#
<br>


<img src="#config.ImagePathURL#/small/#imagethumb#" border="0"></a></div>

</cfoutput>

ok, so you want to apply a different style definition to each table cell, Right?

How about you create a counter which counts for each iteration of the loop in the query. Use that semaphore to dynamically create a named class and create the style definition to apply to each of the classes.

<table width="80%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<CFOUTPUT query="mavroslist" startrow="#start#" maxrows="#display#">
<CFIF (CurrentRow MOD 3) IS 1>
</TR>
<TR valign="baseline">
</CFIF>

<CFPARAM NAME="counter" DEFAULT="1">

<TD class="thumb#counter#">
<div align="center">
#trim(item)#
<br>


<img src="#config.ImagePathURL#/small/#imagethumb#" border="0"></a></div>
<CFSET counter = Counter + 1>

<CFIF Counter GT 6>
     <CFSET Counter = 0>
</CFIF>

</cfoutput>
</td>

</TR>
</TABLE>
