  • This is the CSS code for my table, You can use it if you want but you can always add your own.
border:1px double #A2A3A2;
   border-radius:25px;
  -moz-border-radius:25px; /* Firefox 3.6 and earlier */
  padding:0;
  margin-bottom:15px;
  box-shadow: 2px 5px 10px #666;

NOTE: In adding CSS code, There’s no need to include { } to enclose stylesheet . Only enter the actual style properties. This style will be applied to the content of the table.
