A.2. Tables

A.2.1. border-collapse

This property defines the layout model used in laying out the borders in a tablei.e., those applied to cells, rows, and so forth. Although the property applies only to tables, it is inherited by all the elements within the table.


Values:

collapse | separate | inherit


Initial value:

separate


Applies to:

Elements with the display value table or inline-table


Inherited:

Yes


Computed value:

As specified


Note:

In CSS2, the default value was collapse

A.2.2. border-spacing

This specifies the distance between cell borders in the separated borders model. The first of the two length values is the horizontal separation, and the second is the vertical. This property is ignored unless border-collapse is set to separate. Although the property only applies to tables, it is inherited by all of the elements within the table.


Values:

<length> <length>? | inherit


Initial value:

0


Applies to:

Elements with the display value table or inline-table


Inherited:

Yes


Computed value:

Two absolute lengths


Note:

This property is ignored unless border-collapse value is separate

A.2.3. caption-side

This specifies the placement of a table caption with respect to the table box. The caption is rendered as though it were a block-level element placed just before (or after) the table.

top

Note:

The values left and right appeared in CSS2 but were dropped from CSS2.1 due to a lack of widespread support
