The empty-cells property in CSS sets the behavior of empty table cells. It specifies whether cells with no content should have a border and background or not.
Show borders and background for empty cells:
Hide borders and background for empty cells:
Use the default value for the empty-cells property:
|Show the borders and background for empty cells.
|Hide the borders and background for empty cells.
|Use the value of the parent element.
- Use hide if you want to remove borders and backgrounds from empty cells.
- Use show if you want to display borders and backgrounds for empty cells.
- Use inherit if you want the empty-cells property to inherit the value from its parent element.
- Make sure to provide a meaningful fallback for browsers that do not support the empty-cells property.
- Consider using CSS frameworks like Bootstrap to manage the presentation of table elements, including empty cells.
Note that empty-cells is not supported by Internet Explorer 8 and earlier versions
