Hi,

I ran following example
<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
table,th,td
{
border:1px solid black;
}
</style>
</head>

<body>
<table>
<tr>
<th>Firstname</th>
<th>Lastname</th>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Peter</td>
<td>Griffin</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Lois</td>
<td>Griffin</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window


I have not understood

>>>>>Notice that the table in the example above has double borders. This is because both the table, th, and td elements have separate borders.To display a single border for the table, use the border-collapse property.


please advise. thanks in advance

The TABLE BORDER is the outside bounding line around the entire table.

The TR -- table row -- borders are the horizontal lines inside the table cells -- all horizontal lines

The TD -- table data -  borders are the vertical lines inside all table cells -- all vertical lines.

w3schools and w3.org

Read this to learn the borders:
