[Bug 13915] The suggested presentation differs from the common (if not universal) browser behavior for a table when no attributes and no author style sheets are used. The common default is to render the table with no borders. However, the CSS rules described here imp

That solution to this issue is not compatible with implementations --
implementations default to tables having neither a border-width style (the
initial value is 'medium') nor a border-style style (the initial value is
'none').  Using presentational attributes on the table can set these
properties.

In particular, Gecko, WebKit, and Opera interoperate on this test:

which shows that what keeps table borders hidden initially is the border-style
being none, not the border-width being zero (just like for pretty much
everything else that doesn't have a border by default).
