I'm trying to create a table that has no table border, but has just internal cell borders between neighboring cells (if a cell touches the edge of the table, there is nothing displayed).

It should look like a grid with no top, left, right, or bottom border.

I seems easy to do a table with an external border and no internal grid, but I want the opposite.

Try this:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title> EE Q_28381371 </title>
<style type="text/css">
#tbl {
  border: none;
  border-spacing: 0;
}
#tbl tr td {
  padding: 2px 4px 2px 4px;
}
#tbl tr:not(:first-child) td {
  border-top: 1px solid black;
}
#tbl tr td:not(:first-child) {
  border-left: 1px solid black;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<table id="tbl">
<tr><td>1.1</td><td>1.2</td><td>1.3</td></tr>
<tr><td>2.1</td><td>2.2</td><td>2.3</td></tr>
<tr><td>3.1</td><td>3.2</td><td>3.3</td></tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Alternative with double lines/extra spacing:
<style type="text/css">
#tbl {
  border: none;
  border-spacing: 2px;
}
#tbl tr td {
  padding: 2px 4px 2px 4px;
}
#tbl tr:not(:first-child) td {
  border-top: 1px solid black;
}
#tbl tr:not(:last-child) td {
  border-bottom: 1px solid black;
}
#tbl tr td:not(:first-child) {
  border-left: 1px solid black;
}
#tbl tr td:not(:last-child) {
  border-right: 1px solid black;
}
</style>
