Table behavior Old Way upgraded to CSS

I have a table that works nicely using a combo of old school HTML and
some CSS. I need to keep using tables (due to other code on the
serverside), but would love to get cellpadding, cellspacing and border
in the TABLE tag to be replaced with a single class, while keeping the
same overall behavior.

Here is the current code:

<table height="27" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr>
<td class="table1_c orner_top_left" ><!-- Shape Holder --><img
src="../images/dot_blank.gif" width="8" height="23" alt=""></td>
<td class="table1_t op_sliver" width="100%"
align="absmiddl e">Stuff</td>
<td class="table1_t op_sliver" rowspan="2"
align="absmiddl e">Options</td>
<td class="table1_c orner_top_right "><!-- Shape Holder --><img
src="../images/dot_blank.gif" width="7" height="23" alt=""></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="table1_l eft_sliver"><!-- Shape Holder --><img
src="../images/dot_blank.gif" width="8" height="4" alt=""></td>
<td class="table1_m ain_bg_color">< img
src="../images/dot_blank.gif"> a<br>b</td>
<td class="table1_r ight_sliver"><!-- Shape Holder --><img
src="../images/dot_blank.gif" width="7" height="4" alt=""></td>
</tr>
</table>

What class properties will keep this table behaving the same way?

I tried:

<table height="27" class="Main_Tab le">

where

..MAIN_TABLE
{
padding: 0;
border: 0;
border-collapse: collapse;
}

But I couldn't find a replacement for cellspacing, AND, the whole thing
started getting distorted (where I am using background images).

Is this an instance where I should stick with the Old School HTML way?

Thanks,
Ann

Use
.Main_Table td { padding: ...; margin: ...; }
to set the spacing for the cells.

I'm putting a little table in my DB that I'll call zstblVersion.

Hi, We a have a small office network of 3 users.

Hi All, I know the result of the operator % is the remainder. But I don't find the detailed descriptions, for example from K&R's book http://freebooks.by.ru/view/CProgrammingLanguage/chapter2.html#s2.5 I tried -1 % 10. It gave me -1. How can I make the remainder has the same sign as the divider? How to get -1 % 10 = 9? Thanks! Best wishes,
