the borders implementation for tables is a total mess.  I really need
border="0" or border="1" to be put back into HTML5 and XHTML5 because without
it I can't make a table borders look good. 

some parts are 2px width, some parts are 1px width - big mess, and ugly looking
on every browser.

In fact I suppose that should be a separate bug report...

additionally, using css alone to get the table to look reasonably decent (and
unfortunately still not perfect 1px borders) takes a herculean effort no mortal
man can achieve (well, it's anything but intuitive).

please - bring back "border="n". thanks. I realize this clashes with css and
it's a case of handling priorities.  I am just a web designer who is getting
lost in the shuffle and it seems like the rug is being yanked out from under me
in a few critical areas.
