I have table that is looks like this

<table id="d1" style="margin:10px;background-color:#DFF1F8;border:1px solid;padding:8px;">


Initially the table is empty but it shows the background color and When I start putting rows inside of the table the table grows with the background

What I need is when the table is empty do not show the colors or table at all. I tried empty-cells:hide; but it does not work

table
{
border-collapse:separate;
empty-cells:hide;
}

That is not what empty-cells is for
Remove the padding - that is the only way

How many empty rows do you have?
You can use css:
table tr{background:#DFF1F8;}
table tr:irst-child{background:none}
