Alas, it looks as though the Simple skin modifies the display
of *all* tables used in the page.  From /pmwiki/pub/skins/simple/simple.css:

    table {
        border-collapse: collapse;
        margin-top: 12px;
        margin-bottom: 12px;
    table tr td {
        border: 1px solid #ccc;
        padding: 4px;

which unfortunately is a bit too general, meaning that all tables 
get borders whether you like it or not.  :-(

You can work around it by using "(:cell style='border:0px':)" in
your markup, or by fixing the CSS.  However, the skin itself really
needs to be fixed (and updated for 2.0), perhaps I'll do that in
the next day or so if nobody else gets to it.
