Problem with html table appearance

  1. Hello, so I went online and got my code for a html table. The table looks good in the "edit page" visual mode. But when I click preview or even update the page the result looks nothing like it did in the edit mode. Here is the code I used for the table:

    Table code
    <table style="background-color: #99ccff;" width="400" border="1" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="3">
    <tbody>
    <tr>
    <td>Table Cell</td>
    <td>Table Cell</td>
    </tr>
    </tbody>
    </table>

    Here is what I get when I publish the page: http://fringeparanormal.wordpress.com/para-news-3/para-radio/

    Not only that, but when I mouse over the table, the table background that IS there turns white.

    Any help with this would be great. Thanks, Don

    The blog I need help with is fringeparanormal.wordpress.com.

  2. Have you done anything to the CSS, previously?

    used your code in my "testing blog" post

    http://dlager.wordpress.com/2011/06/07/table-test/ ..with the "beach" theme
    and it looks good and correct. Mouse-over is turns it yellow.

    If you haven't altered the CSS, I am wondering if it is the theme.(mystique)
