The "best" way to handle this is to define a class (or id) for the table in
a css file and then set the border (i.e., styling) to whatever you want. For
example, your HTML would look like:
And your CSS would contain:
border: 1px solid black;
I more or less agree with you, but sometimes it's technically a little
more difficult than that.
As is often the case with CSS, that's a good bit more text to
accomplish the same effect as an older, smaller attribute. :-)
The problem you cite is well said and your point is well taken.
However, the main point I am making is to move this problem totally
out of the HTML/PHP arena and place it where it belongs, which is
inside CSS -- after it *is* a presentation problem.
IMO, it is *far* better to deal with browser comparability problems
from one CSS file than it is to sort through all your PHP files
looking for the phrase <table border="1">. From my experience, when
you have a problem, it is always better to give it a name and deal
with it from one location.
As for "older, smaller attributes", they are only getting older and
their importance lessens with time (I can relate.) :-)
