Hi guys, I am trying to validate my web sites pages and have done so with the following page using Firefox and Tidy:

http://www.internetbusinessdirectory.co.uk/bedfordshire/bedfordshire.htm

However, when I specify a border colour W3C Validator does not accept it. The attribute I used is  - bordercolor="maroon" in the main Table tag as follows:
<table align="left" border="1" bordercolor="maroon" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="780">

Currently the above page does not show this in order to remain valid html 4.01, but it works fine with the code added to give the maroon border colour I want.

Can you please advise how I can have my maroon border and still be valid 4.01 code.

I am also confused, as the web site below says W3C has recently allowed this attribute:

Please advise,

Kind regards,
