This may be a question for ninesixty where that css was apparently borrowed from.

We rethemed an existing site that has extensive use of embedded tables in node bodies. With table { border:0; } in reset.css all control is lost at the content level to control borders.

As there is no way to 'unset' css in an upper layer, is this a bug or not?

This reset.css is the standard one by Eric Myers, css mastermind genius.

You should be able to anywhere in a later css file in your subtheme be able to set your own standard for this with just a

table {
border: 1px solid;

or any declaration of your choice. I like to have my own "standard" defaults.css or something like that when creating a new subtheme to take care of some of the top level things, and this is usually where this would reside in my own work...

I don't feel this is a bug, and will mark as postponed. if a lot of people want the change, I'll consider it later.

I agree, the problem I'm having is that I can't return control to the embedded table content. Which means special CSS for every table in a many,many thousands of nodes site.

I think I'll just comment it out. Thanks for noting that there isn't a way to do it. :)

Marking closed. Will consider additional CSS changes at a later date.
