This is mainly for a better understanding. I haven't done these in awhile either.

I have a simple nested table, which I like the appearance of. But, there is padding around the inner table that I have been unsuccessfully trying to get rid of.

How can I keep the appearance, while removing the inner padding? Any ideas...I'm depleted. Thanks.

Code:
<div id="nestedtable">
    <table width="100%" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" border="1">
        <thead>
            <tr>
                <th colspan="2" align="center">Title</th>
            </tr>
        </thead>
        <tbody>
            <tr>
                <td rowspan="13">
                    <table width="100%" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" border="1">
                        <thead>
                            <tr>
                                <th width="50%" align="center">Subtitle 1</th>
                            </tr>
                        </thead>
                        <tbody>
                            <tr>
                                <td>Item 1</td>
                            </tr>
                            <tr>
                                <td>Item 2</td>
                            </tr>
                            <tr>
                                <td>Item 3</td>
                            </tr>
