Datalist question

I am working with the following datalist and it's giving me a problem.  


    <asp:Datalist ID="dlBB" align="center" Width="95%" OnItemCreated="DataList_ItemCreated" runat="server">
        <HeaderTemplate>
            <table class="bordered" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" width="100%">
            <tr class="header_row">
                <th colspan="3" class="h_12">Blackberry</th>
            </tr>
            <tr class="subheader_row">
                <th class="b_9" width="250">Device Count</th>
                <th class="b_9" colspan="2">Hierarchy</th>
            </tr>
        </HeaderTemplate>
       
        <ItemTemplate>
            <tr onmouseover="style.backgroundColor='#FFFFCC'" onmouseout="style.backgroundColor=''">
                <td class="r_10" width="100"><%# Container.Dataitem("DeviceCount")%>&nbsp;</td>
                <td class="r_10" colspan="2"><%#CommonFunctions.CommonFunctions.GetHierarchy(Container.DataItem("Hierarchy"))%>&nbsp;</td>
            </tr>
        </ItemTemplate>
       
       <FooterTemplate>
            <tr>
              <td>
                  <asp:Label ID="lblBBTotal" CssClass="b_10" runat="server" />
              </td>
              <td colspan="2" align="right">
                <a class="reglink" href="HierarchyReport.aspx?vendor=<%=lblVendor.text%>&action=HierarchyReportBB" target="_blank">Download Excel Report</a>
              </td>
            </tr>
            </table>
        </FooterTemplate>
    </asp:Datalist>


For whatever reason, it's putting an extra <td> tag around the <itemtemplate>, like such:
<tr><td>
            --contents of the item template
                <td class="r_10" width="100">1&nbsp;</td>
                <td class="r_10" colspan="2">F - TS & F&nbsp;</td>
 </td></tr>

It's screwing up my css and driving me nuts.  Any thoughts?

Thanks,

In what way is it messing with your CSS?

It's making the border double as thick as it is supposed to be

Is the cellpadding="2" causing it?

Changing the cellpadding didn't change anything.  I think it's something to do with the way the Datalist generates HTML.  I changed one of the datalists to a repeater control and it worked fine.

In the interest of time, I just changed all of the datalists to repeater controls which seems to have fixed the problem.  Apparently it renders HTML differently which is why I was getting extra tags.
