<para>Tables using HTML markup elements can use an attribute
named <tag class="attribute">rules</tag> on the <tag>table</tag> or
<tag>informaltable</tag> element
to specify whether column and row border rules should be
displayed. This parameter lets you specify a global default
style for all HTML tables that don't otherwise have
that attribute.</para>
<para>These are the supported values:</para>
<para>Rules will appear between all rows and columns.</para>
<para>Rules will appear between rows only.</para>
<para>Rules will appear between columns only.</para>
<para>Rules will appear between row groups (thead, tfoot, tbody).
No support for rules between column groups yet.
<para>No rules. This is the default value.
<para>The border after the last row and the border after
the last column are not affected by
this setting. Those borders are controlled by
the <tag class="attribute">frame</tag> attribute on the table element.
