Make table border setting override cell styles
Currently, if I set a table border via Table Styles, then set a cell style with no borders around the cells, the cell style overrides the table style and the border around the table is removed. The only way around this is to create separate cell styles for the header, footer, left, and right columns and assign those to the table style-- that's a lot of junk styles needed to accomplish one piece of formatting.
My suggestion is to let us choose whether or not the table border overrides cell styles. That way, setting the table border becomes a one click operation rather than a tedious style creation and assignment process.

This is absolutely vital for using tables. I cannot think of a single case where you would want cell borders to override table borders – if you wanted that, you’d simply just not specify a table border.
Table borders should override cell borders by default; anything else is just madness. The hierarchy should be table borders > header/footer cell borders > body cell borders, which is the exact opposite of what it currently is.
I feel like I was taking crazy pills here trying to figure out why I can't have both a table border and cell style.
