You could create a class, and assign that class to the table properties. Look at the attached for the CSS. Follow in the html, define the table as follows:

<TABLE class="mytable">

See if that works for you.
width: 1000px;
background-color: #232323;
border-style: none;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
