@JaySODec 05.2022 — To set the cellpadding and cellspacing of a table using CSS, you can use the padding and border-spacing properties, respectively. These properties should be applied to the td and th elements within the table.

Here is an example:

table {
border-collapse: separate;

td, th {
padding: 10px;
border-spacing: 10px;

In this example, cellpadding is set to 10px and cellspacing is set to 10px. These values can be adjusted as needed to achieve the desired effect.

Note: In order for the border-spacing property to take effect, the border-collapse property must be set to separate for the table. This ensures that each cell has its own distinct border, which can be spaced using the border-spacing property.
