How do I adjust the css of td border of a specific row containing a specific text string, using jQuery?

On my site: http://temp.novelbread.com/informazioni/schiacciatine-biologiche/ you can see a table. I need to be able to do this using jQuery:

For the rows which contain the words: "di cui:" I would like to make that entire row appear as a long cell rather than a row divided into 3 cells. I don't mind if we can achieve that by just hiding the 2 vertical borders inside using css.


The table is auto-generated so I have to tinker with it using jquery as I can't edit the php code for this.

Any help would be appreciated.

The correct way of doing this is to use colspan on the <td>

The other correct way of doing this is to give the targeted cells a class - i.e. when the table is built put the class in at that point

Then there is the WordPress way of doing things which is to cycle the server's CPU several orders of magnitude more than is necessary.

Try this.
jQuery('td:contains(di cui:)').each(
    function() {
      jQuery(this).css({borderRight: 0, borderLeft: 0})
      .next('td').css({borderRight: 0, borderLeft: 0})
      .next('td').css({borderRight: 0, borderLeft: 0});
    }
);
