Say you have this table:

<table id="myTable">
     <tr>
          <td></td>
     </tr>
     <tr>
         <td></td>
     </tr>
</table>

And you want a border around the second row.  Use this:

function setBorder() {
     var rowToSet = document.getElementById("myTable").rows[1];
     rowToSet.style.border = '2px solid black';
}

Are you sure that works?! it does not work with me: here is my entire page:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
 <script type="text/javascript">
      function setborder(){
      var rowToSet = document.getElementById("myTable").rows[1];
     rowToSet.style.border = '2px solid black';
     }
</script>
</HEAD>
<BODY onload="myfunction">

<table id="myTable"  >
     <tr >
          <td>row 1</td>
     </tr>
     <tr>
         <td>row 2</td>
     </tr>
     <input type="button" onclick="setborder()" value="test" />
</table>
</BODY>
</HTML>
