The border attribute of the table tag is the alternative to CSS. The CSS method is to give the table and the table cells border properties.
<table border="1">

Open in new window

is equivalent to
table, td, th { border: inset 1px #000; }

Open in new window

Nope, it is not a css style, but an attribute of table element

All of the old table formatting attributes have been dropped from HTML5 except border, and it only allows the values "" or "1".  It is a bad idea to use it.  CSS is the way to go for modern pages.
