    Lets say we have this typical table with borders:

    <table border="1" cellspacing="0">
    <tr><td>content</td><td>&nbsp;</td><td></td>...

    Many browsers will collapse the border on the empty cell.

    Is there a way other than the &nbsp; hack to prevent that?

    table{empty-cells:show} (not supported by IE).
