I'll accept that as a browser inconsistency, as the border widths
appear to be totally random as you zoom in and out. All <td>s are
identically defined - with pixels - in regards to border-width, so I
can't see how they'd fluctuate according to the zoom function. This

The original problem I noticed was that some of the borders were
totally invisible at 100%, which is why I zoomed in. On printing the
page out normally, the really thin "borders" aren't there at all. If
you can't see the "lost borders", are you looking on OS X? The
problem is not apparent under Windows (XP).

Correct. Only specific pages in the system have borders on the table
cells (such as this page), whereas all <th> have borders by default.
The browser should be able to deal with the horizontal padding and
work out the width of each cell dynamically, as there are no set
widths defined. Even with no padding on any cells, the border problem
is still there.

Yes, that's correct. The borders are turned off for thead th.

I had checked the syntax in BBEdit but have now validated it with the
W3C; I'd left a few <tr>s outside the <tbody> tags, which invalidated
it. It's correct now, but the problem is still there...
