I need to know how to change the color of the border around my tables in Dreamweaver CS6. I saw a article on how to change it on http://forums.adobe.com/message/4451812, but i really couldnt follow because im just starting out using dreamweaver and i dont know anything about code. Is there a simple way to change the border color or can you give me a basic step process on how to change the border color in the code?
table, th, td
border: 1px solid black;
Just an FYI, nobody uses Table-based layouts anymore. It's much better to use CSS for layouts. Only use tables for tabular data like spreadsheets and charts.
Dreamweaver has a bunch of pre-built CSS Layouts for you to use as starter pages. Just go to File > New > Blank page > HTML. Pick a layout from the 3rd panel and hit Create button. See screenshot below.
I know about the different layouts but im doing this for a school project not for a personal use so im just usuing a table to display some information and didnt want the same plain border color. Thanks for the helpful information though.
ok so i followed what you said Ken and it worked, but i also found out all i had to do was make a blank space after the code part for my table <table width="80%" border="5" > and it pops up a list of options. One clearly says border colored which i somehow missed and it even pops up a color chart. But thanks for the help.
Hopes this helps anyone who needs it
Glad you've learned a bit more about how DW works, but your method should NOT be marked as "correct". The code it generates is not valid code to meet W3C standards, for either HTML 4.01 or HTML5, so your page will not validate.

I you are ever called upon to produce HTML emails, rather than web pages, you can use your method
