My proposal is that @border should be defined like a normal, enumerated
attribute:

<table border="1"> = border-width:1px; Valid keyword value 
<table border=""  > = border-width:1px; Valid keyword value
<table border="9"> = border-width:1px; Invalid value default
<table border="0"> = border-width:0; Valid keyword value
<table no-border > = border-width:0; Missing value default 

It is pretty obvious that when a style should be derived from an enumerated
attribute, then "you can do the desired thing with CSS", alone.
