Tables have changed, though it's arguable as to whether the changes are 
useful for anything other than making the manual obsolete.

In 1.3.5, try Shift+Alt+Click on a cell (you will do it twice, once to 
deselect the table, then the second to select the cell). Once you have a 
cell selected, then you will find the means to indicate which borders to 
show, but AFAIK you will have to have all the borders which you check 
the same thickness and color.
