CoexEdit Tip: Web table borders that look like Notes table borders

A question has come up occasionally about how to make a web table look more like a Notes client table when using CoexEdit. For example, the table below (shown as a bitmap):
looks like this, by default, on the web (also shown as bitmap):
but with the addition of a simple configuration property, it can look like this in Firefox:
and almost as good in Internet Explorer 6:
All that is required is to modify the $CoexProperties in both the FCKEditorSubform and NotesClientSubform (or whatever you use as equivalents) and change from
"CoexEditor='FCKEditor' CSSBorders='Yes' "
and new fields saved from either the web or from the Notes client will use the collapsed border look that appears more like Notes.
You may wonder why we don't set this as a default in CoexEdit, which we could and have discussed, but it does make setting CSS styles of your own a bit harder, and some web users would be more comfortable with the web like appearance, so we have left it up to the form designer to decide on his or her audience and their needs and desires.
