Nested tables with borders

P: n/a
What's the correct technique for nesting a bordered table inside of cell of
another bordered table without getting a double-thickness border around the
nested table? This is assuming the collapsing-border model.

An example of where I have a good reason to do this is at
<http://www.wayneengineering.com/literature/wcsf-settings.php>. In this
case I was able to get away with using ordered lists for the parameters
with enumerated values, but what if the parameters and enumerated values
were named rather than numbered (as they indeed are on another instrument
from the same manufacturer)? In that case a nested two-column (enumerated
value, meaning of value) table would be semantically appropriate.

You could use rowspan and colspan. I don't think nested tables are
required.
