Kravimir, Thanks for the response to my question regarding how to format TWO tables in HTML pages - I have tried giving an ID as you suggested but couldn't get it to work. its probably a problem with the synatx - could you give me a brief example of the html  code and the CSS entry?

I'm curious, why did you ask a new question instead of just posting a comment in the other one which is still open?

Anyway, here's an example:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<style type="text/css">/* <![CDATA[ */
a {
  color: #03c;
  text-decoration: underline;
a:hover {
  color: #03c;
  text-decoration: none;
table td {
  padding: .3em;
  background-color: #e8e0aa;
table.alternate td {
  padding: .3em;
  background-color: #cec;
table.alternate a {
  color: #667;
  text-decoration: underline;
table.alternate a:hover {
  color: #334;
  text-decoration: none;
/* ]]> */</style>
    <td><a href="#">example link</a></td>
<table class="alternate">
    <td><a href="#">example link</a></td>

Its my ignorance of exactly how EE works - I didn't realise that the comment went back to the guy who provides the answer - which when I think about it now is a bit dull - who did I think the comment went to!

Anyway thanks for the answer.
