    Table Borders

    I am redesigning a page and I want to puta stylish border around my table. This brought up a question: is it possible to specify an image to be used as the border for a table? So, if I create say a fancy looking line, is it possible to set my table border to this using CSS?

    you could however use the tables as a container to hold the images and then put whatever content you wanted in a table within the images..

    or you could have one table which would be the background picture which in turn would be the border. (in this case you would have to use a static size). Then create the table with the info over top of the other table leaving only the edges showing.

    This would give the illusion of a border.
