implementing css to the datatable seemed a bit tricky, mostly because of themes css is messing things up. odd/even row colors are now something horrible. also content is only widening to right side... iwould like to have the datatable centered(i think page template tweaking is needed here)
i got some success when implementind id name to datatable and putting some extra css codes to custom-css part of my theme.
anyone have any examples how to master this... perhaps this question should be on my templates maker forum, but still :P
