Currently, the borders of the preferences htmlform table are not collapsed, and so we get lines when we hover:

If we set border-collapse:collapse then the form is slightly more compact than currently, and the hover background color looks better:

Is this okay?

[mediawiki/extensions/GlobalPreferences@master] Improve styling of the local exception field

The borders definitely don't look great, but I'm concerned this may turn into a game of whack-a-mole across multiple browsers. What's the best way to test this across multiple browser/OS combinations?

The main thing being changed is the border-collapse property (exchanging a 2px border-spacing with a 2px cell padding), which has full support in all browsers.

There are definitely improvements that can be made, but I think if OOUI for preferences is coming soon then it's better to wait.

Good to hear.
