<<Peoeple wanting unbroken borders would put the border property on TR
or COL in that case.>>

Has anyone else wondered why table rows are TR (table row), but table
columns are COL rather than TC (table column)? Does this have anything to do
with a VOID?

That said, it is interesting that within a table there are containers in
both the vertical and horizontal dimensions, and the children are shared.
Are we perhaps seeing a conceptual confluence of HTML and real life?
