CSS Table Border, Revisited...

Please refer to http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Q_20944285.html for initial information.

It turns out that I will need to use tables elsewhere on my site.  And those tables should have "no border" like the outer table.  However, the following CSS:
  table table, table table td { border:1px solid #000; border-collapse: collapse;}
affects ALL interior tables.  Is there a way to make a table have a class that also affects the td's inside it?

So that

  <table class=border>
    <tr>
      <td></td><td></td>
    </tr>
  </table>

would have exterior and interior borders and

  <table class=NOborder>
    <tr>
      <td></td><td></td>
    </tr>
  </table>

would not?  I really don't want to have to use "class=" on every td inside the table (there's plenty).

Thanks dfu23.  Quick easy points.  This is what I've decided to use, with your help...

  table.border { border:1px solid #000; border-collapse: collapse;}
  table.border td { border:1px solid #000; border-collapse: collapse;}
  table.noborder { border:0; border-collapse: collapse;}
  table.noborder td { border:0; border-collapse: collapse;}
