Width, Border, Align, Valign << Cellpadding & Cellspacing >> Table Header
The TABLE tag has two properties known as CELLSPACING and CELLPADDING. Here is a table example without these properties on. These properties may be used seperatly or together. The examples shown are separate to show you the difference easier.

<table border="1">
<tr>
<td>some text</td>
<td>some text</td>
</tr><tr>
<td>some text</td>
<td>some text</td>
</tr>
</table>
some text some text
some text some text

CELLSPACING is the pixel width between the individual data cells in the TABLE. (The thickness of the lines makeing the TABLE grid). The default is zero. If the BORDER is set at 0, the CELLSPACING lines will be invisible.

<table border="1" cellspacing="5">
<tr>
<td>some text</td>
<td>some text</td>
</tr><tr>
<td>some text</td>
<td>some text</td>
</tr>
</table>
some text some text
some text some text

CELLPADDING is the pixel space between the cell contents and the cell border. The default for this property is also zero. This feature is not used often, but sometimes comes in handy when you have your borders turned on and you want the contents to be "away" from the border a bit for easy viewing. CELLPADDING is invisible, even with the BORDER property turned on.

<table border="1" cellpadding="10">
<tr>
<td>some text</td>
<td>some text</td>
</tr><tr>
<td>some text</td>
<td>some text</td>
</tr>
</table>
