OK. I changed to a border of 5 and dropped the border color 
specification as it seemed to be ignored in the wiki as you suggested.

I'm not though seeing anything like the image you posted. The table now 
and prior looked alright to me. I've tested the current talk page in IE, 
Edge, Chrome, Firefox and Silk. All look OK to me.

I have noticed for other tables in our wiki we have gone without borders 
- the pavement pattern for example. Doing that here too is an option.
