Reported by Gérard Talbox.

17.3 (Columns) [http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/tables.html#columns] contains an example of style rules which implement the "rules" attribute of HTML 4 with a value of "cols":

  # col { border-style: none solid }
  # table { border-style: hidden }

However, the second style rule should set the 'border-collapse' property to 'collapse' if it is to implement HTML's "rules" attribute as claimed.  (Note that the initial value of 'border-collapse' is 'separate'.)

Observe that 17.6.2 (The collapsing border model) [http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/tables.html#collapsing-borders] says:

  # Borders for HTML's "rules" attribute can be specified this way.
