it's easy to manipulate the style param of a <td> within .net you just:

dividerCol1.Style.Clear();
dividerCol1.Style.Add("background-color","#CCCCCC");

or whatever

is there easy access to the css class param of a <td>? like <td class="backColor"> or do I have to go through the attributes property?

Can you not just use dividerCol1.CssClass?

Sorry, that was not meant to be flippant. I have been setting class attributes of various objects (including <tr> and <td>) using the cssclass property, admittedly that was through a datagrid.

'System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlTableCell' does not contain a definition for 'CssClass'

For an HtmlControl run at the server, use

Dim tblc As System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlTableCell
Dim tblr As System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlTableRow
For Each tblr In Me.Table1.Rows
    tblr.Attributes.Add("class", "Row Class")
    For Each tblc In tblr.Cells
        tblc.Attributes.Add("class", "Cell Class")
    Next
Next

or in c#, which your question was in

foreach (HtmlTableRow tblr in this.Table1.Rows)
{
      tblr.Attributes.Add("class", "row class");
      foreach (HtmlTableCell tblc in tblr.Cells)
      {
            tblc.Attributes.Add("class", "cell class");
      }
}

If you do this a lot, and you want more brevity in your code, you could always create a custom control inheriting a tablecell class. You could add your own myCssClass property to it, and then override the RenderAttrbutes method, adding the attributes at this stage from the properties that were set, and then calling the base RenderAttributes.

Might be more hassle than it is worth though. I suppose you could always use the WebControls (which have a cssclass property) instead of the HtmlControls, but there are probably advantages to using the HtmlControls in your situation which is why you haven't just gone for the WebControls in the first place.
