That won't work.
(This would be much easier if you could see...)
I have 3 rows but I only want an outside border. So the border between Row #1 and Row #2 should disappear and the border between Row #2 and Row #3 should disappear. But I still need the outside border.
Understand these "3 rows" are a subset of a larger table...
If I recall correctly, all "border-collapse:collapse;" does is to collapse borders into a single border when possible.
