Rigt now this table is alight to left. I want to add a very thin border to the table and indent the table just a bit to the right, 10px. How can I do this?  I don't want to use css - margin

<table>       
            <tr>
                <td colspan="2" valign="top">
                  lableOrder
                  textboxOrder
                <td>
            <tr>
            <tr>
                <td colspan="2" valign="top">
                  lableAddress
                  textboxAddress
                <td>
            <tr>
	     <tr>
                <td colspan="2" valign="top">
                  lableCountry
                  textboxCountry
                <td>
            <tr>
		<tr>
                <td valign="top">
                  lableItemNumber
                  textboxItemNumber
                <td>
		<td valign="top">
                  lablePrice
                  textboxPrice
                <td>
            <tr>	
 <table>

You could try putting the original table inside another table:

<TABLE WIDTH="100%" BORDER="0" CELLSPACING="0" CELLPADDING="0">
<TR>
<TD>&nbsp;</TD>
<TD>original table goes here</TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>

Open in new window


The non-breaking space in the first column will give approximately 10 pixels width.  If precise width is required, a 10 pixel blank image can be inserted, or use another method to space exactly.

here is everything you wanted to know about table borders & margins and were too afraid to ask: Examples of table borders and rules - W3C

but margin seems to be the only way to go to add space on the outer edges of a table :-(

You could also wrap your table in a div with a left padding.

But I'm curious why you don't want to use margins which would be the obvious choice.

Here's how I'd do it:
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Table Sample</title>
</head>

<body>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td><img src="spacerx.gif" width="10" height="10" alt=""/></td>
      <td>
      <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="1" style="background-color: #000000;" >
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td><table width="200" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="1" style="background-color: #FFFFFF;">
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td>My</td>
      <td>Original</td>
      <td>Table</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>My</td>
      <td>Original</td>
      <td>Table</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>My</td>
      <td>Original</td>
      <td>Table</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>
</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>
</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Hi,

You can try to add 1 more table above current table and add 2 column and 1st <td> will have space how much you want and 2nd <td> have content.

Something like below example:
<table>
<tr>
 <td width="10"></td>
  <td>
    <table class='tablebox'>       
            <tr>
          
                <td colspan="2" valign="top">
                  lableOrder
                  textboxOrder
                <td>
            <tr>
            <tr>
      
                <td colspan="2" valign="top">
                  lableAddress
                  textboxAddress
                <td>
            <tr>
           <tr>

                <td colspan="2" valign="top">
                  lableCountry
                  textboxCountry
                <td>
            <tr>
            <tr>

                <td valign="top">
                  lableItemNumber
                  textboxItemNumber
                <td>
            <td valign="top">
                  lablePrice
                  textboxPrice
                <td>
            <tr>      
 </table>

  </td>
 </tr>
</table>

Why don't you want to use a margin?
Alternative wrap it in a div with padding
<div style="padding-left: 10px">
  <table>
   ...
   </table>
</div>

Open in new window

Or use a class
CSS
.padded-table {
   padding-left: 10px;
}

Open in new window

HTML
<div class="padded-table">
  <table>
   ...
   </table>
</div>
