Exactly what Bill predicted.  He has the gift of prediction.  The border 
is the background color of the outer table.  They set the cell spacing to
1 on the inner table to make the border appear 1 pixel width.

Even bigger table around it.  The background has no image -- it's just a
white color.  It rounds off the corners with images placed on the right
corners.  Slashdot does exactly the same thing, doesn't it?
