To use an image as a table border:
("n1" is the thickness of the top border for height and "n2" is the thickness of border for width.)
Type <table border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0> to begin.
Type <tr><td colspan=3 height=n1 background="yourimage.gif">nbsp;</td></tr> This completes the cell and row and fills it with a non-breaking space to ensure it appears. NOTE* This forum doesn't like the non-breaking code or I'm doing something wrong so add the ampersand & in front of the nbsp;
Type <tr><td width=n2 background="yourimage.gif">nbsp;</td> using the same image as above.
Type <td>Your Content Here</td> where content is what you'd like to display in the table, even another table.
repeat above <td width=n2....</td>
Repeat above <tr><td colspan=3 height=n1.....</td></tr>
Type </table> to end
A pain but fun to play around with. Hope it helps.
