Outside table border only - FF & IE confict


I am supernew at all this webstuff and am learning as I go. One of the major problems I have already encountered on numerous occasions is that IE and FF don't display the same way!
Latest problem is the outside table border.
Did not use Css as I have not worked my way up to those yet :-(
Used the following in the ouside table tag (not sure how to indicate width)
frame="border" bordercolor="#999999"
In FF this displays fine with a fine grey border line only on the outside table. IE however applies this border to all cell within that table as well! (excluding the nested tables?)

I am at a loss as to how to fix this, as most people visiting the site I am creating will probably be IE clients.

Help would be greatly appreciated!

This works with both IE and FF

its a table, with css in it indicated by 'style'
you can change the color, but if you want it to be just the outside border, keep it the way it is, and only modify the color

<table border="0" style=" border: 1px solid red;"><tr><td>TEST</td></tr></table>

let me know your results

Just now figured something out that worked with the css as well...

table.main {border:thin #999999 solid;}

with "main" as the class="main" in the actual table tag.

So I guess 2 solutions for 1 problem!
