HTML 4.0 introduces two new attributes for table element - frame and
rules. They are able to do things like this. See


11.3.1 Borders and rules

The following attributes affect a table's external frame and internal

Attribute definitions

frame = void|above|below|hsides|lhs|rhs|vsides|box|border [CI] 
This attribute specifies which sides of the frame surrounding a table
will be visible. Possible values: 
void: No sides. This is the default value. 
above: The top side only. 
below: The bottom side only. 
hsides: The top and bottom sides only. 
vsides: The right and left sides only. 
lhs: The left-hand side only. 
rhs: The right-hand side only. 
box: All four sides. 
border: All four sides. 

rules = none|groups|rows|cols|all [CI] 
This attribute specifies which rules will appear between cells within a
table. The rendering of rules is user agent dependent. Possible values: 
none: No rules. This is the default value. 
groups: Rules will appear between row groups (see THEAD, TFOOT, and
TBODY) and column groups (see COLGROUP and COL) only. 
rows: Rules will appear between rows only. 
cols: Rules will appear between columns only. 
all: Rules will appear between all rows and columns.
