Hi Experts,

I have attached an image of a simple html table and my goal is to have a red border beneath the <tr><th>.  So I set the css border property for <th> and as you can see there are space between the lines.  I'd like it to appear as one continuous line accross the top to table.

Here is the CSS for the <th>:

#rateTable th {
      
      padding:3px 3px 2px 3px;
      font-size:.9em;
      font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
      border-bottom:thin red solid;
}

How can I do this in CSS?

Thanks

Your table tag needs to says "cellspacing=0".  I don't believe that can be done in CSS.

the gap is being caused by the padding.
the common way to do this is to test an additional table so that underline is part of the 'outer' table and the text are part of 'inner' tables.
