i have a webpage im working on with tables.

i cant figure out how to boarder the tables.

while each table has its own cellspacing, cellpadding, and border settings, how do i place a border around them all, enclosing ALL of the below tables with one border ... example below:



--->>  wanting border around all of this below,  starting here in the script  <<---

<table width=100% cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 border=0 bordercolor=gray>
<tr>
<td width="100%"><font class=peq color=eeeeee><CENTER>Main Heading<CENTER></font></td>
</tr>
</table>

<table width=100% cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 border=1 bordercolor=gray>
<tr>
<td width="100%"><font class=peq color=eeeeee><CENTER>sub heading<CENTER></font></td>
</tr>
</table>

<table width=100% cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 border=0>
<tr>
<td width="20%" valign=top bgcolor="000000"><font class=peq><a href="http://web-site.com/"><center>link text</a></center></font></td>

put a table (or div-block) around all those tables and assign the border you want to that.

I would simplify your structure with CSS, and use a div for your border. I'm not sure what you're doing with the peq style, but you can incorporate it easily enough...


<html>
<head>
<title>Table Border</title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
table      { width:100%; }
td.peq     { background-color:#000000; text-align:center; width:20%; }
td.heading { color:#EEEEEE; text-align:center; width:100%; }
//-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div style="border: 1px solid #FF0000;">
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" bordercolor="gray">
<tr>
<td class="heading">Main Heading</td>
</tr>
</table>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="1" bordercolor="gray">
<tr>
<td class="heading">sub heading</td>
</tr>
</table>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1" border="0">
<tr>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
</tr>
</table>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1" border="0">
<tr>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
</tr>
</table>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1" border="0">
<tr>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
</tr>
</table>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1" border="0">
<tr>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
<td valign=top class="peq"><a href="http://web-site.com/">link text</a></td>
</tr>
</table>
</div>
</body>
