place this into the <table> tag.

border="1" bordercolor="#000000"

This is the CSS way...

<style type="text/css">
.topleft, .topcenter, .topright, .centerleft, .centercenter, .centerright {
border-top:1px solid #000;
.topcenter, .topright, .centercenter, .centerright, .bottomcenter, .bottomright {
border-right:1px solid #000;
.centerleft, .centercenter, .centerright, .bottomleft, .bottomcenter, .bottomright {
border-bottom:1px solid #000;
.topleft, .topcenter, .centerleft, .centercenter, .bottomleft, .bottomcenter {
border-left:1px solid #000;
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<td class="topleft">xxx</td>
<td class="topcenter">xxx</td>
<td class="topright">xxx</td></tr>
<td class="centerleft">xxx</td>
<td class="centercenter">xxx</td>
<td class="centerright">xxx</td></tr>
<td class="bottomleft">xxx</td>
<td class="bottomcenter">xxx</td>
<td class="bottomright">xxx</td></tr>

Try this... using spacing between cells.

<TABLE width=304 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 border=0>
<TD valign=top bgcolor="#000000">
<TABLE width=304 cellspacing=1 cellpadding=0 border=0>
<TD width=100 valign=top bgcolor="#FFFFFF" rowspan=2>cell 1</TD>
<TD width=100 valign=top bgcolor="#FFFFFF">cell 2</TD>
<TD width=100 valign=top bgcolor="#FFFFFF">cell 3</TD>
<TD width=100 valign=top bgcolor="#FFFFFF">cell 4</TD>
<TD width=100 valign=top bgcolor="#FFFFFF">cell 5</TD>
<TD width=200 valign=top bgcolor="#FFFFFF" colspan=2>cell 6</TD>
<TD width=100 valign=top bgcolor="#FFFFFF">cell 7</TD>

Also, there are other ways for 1px borders, like building 1px width cells with background color.

Hope this helps.
