That is one of the oddest pages I've seen.  It looks like the pages that Microsoft Word generates.  I can't tell what you want the results to be.

This sample html is wriiten by myself using text editor.
You could view the html in IE and firefox to view the border aligmnnent differences.
The results i want it to be is that the right border line of "Apple 1" and "Orange 1" to be align together like what firefox is displaying.

Does anyone have any idea how could it be done?

What you're seeing there is that IE uses different font rendering than the other browsers.  You should also realize that on screens that are larger or smaller, your alignment will change also because your width will change.

I don't believe so because it isn't CSS that is causing the problem, it's the difference in font rendering.  And since there are so many things that will break the alignment anyway, I simply wouldn't be trying to do that.  If in a real situation you needed that kind of precision, I would tell you to use an image because it will be displayed pixel for pixel in all browsers.

Other than an image suggested above, if you allow enough padding in each cell for the text (like 5 px left and right) and center the text, the problem will probably go away.  This type of variability almost always comes from trying to cram text into too small a cell with too little or no white space around the text -- which is always a bad practice, as it will break (literally to another line) in some browser or other.  But as the push comes for more crammed text to fit on tablets and iphones, the problem becomes pervasive.

Hi!

This is a bug in IE since IE6 and is still a problem in IE 8. I do not know if this is fix in IE9 can't test it.

The solution is simply this:

Put overflow:auto; and zoom:1 in your paragraph element, as shown below.

<p style="text-align: justify; zoom: 1; overflow: auto;">

Cheers,

Another solution without the use of zoom is to replace zoom with display:inline-block as shown below.

<p style="text-align: justify; display: inline-block; overflow: auto;">
