Hi

Would like to customise the table output for Web Help. Though m able to provide row border and table border as 1px solid black...m not able to do the same for column.
Can someone let me know how to go about this.

Thanks in advance,
Leena.

Perhaps what you are looking for is something like this?

If not then I think we need more information describing exactly what you want your tables to look like.

Note: The DITA OT does not output colgroup or col elements in its tables for HTML outputs, so columns are not directly addressable via CSS. If you need those then you would be looking at making modifications to the XSLT that the DITA OT uses to generate HTML tables. I don't know how widely supported those HTML elements are in browsers though, or the support for rendering CSS properties related to those elements, so you may want to investigate that before considering this route.
