I need to edit two things for Monobook - the wikitable class and the table that contains file data on the description page. I want to these to look like on Oasis - on MB these are all white. My wiki is here. I'm really bad when it comes to CSS, so could you help me? Thanks, Final Cannon 21:44, January 2, 2012 (UTC)

I'm not quite sure what you're asking? What "wikitable class"? And, do you mean the table that appears for camera data on File: image descriptions pages? -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 2 Jan 2012 4:04 PM Pacific
I've managed to get the wikitable working. I was asking about standard class for the tables, as you write

And for the second - yes. Final Cannon 23:09, January 2, 2012 (UTC)

The file history table uses the wikitable class, specifically class="wikitable filehistory", and I don't think the filehistory class applies any more style to the table. So I think changing the wikitable class should automatically update the file table. Be sure to bypass your cache! —Airhogs777 WCB WS 03:45, January 4, 2012 (UTC)
Nope, the table is still white while normal wikitables changed. Final Cannon 13:38, January 4, 2012 (UTC)
I see the file history (using the "wikitable" class) display properly. As for the camera metadata, add this to your Common.css or Monobook.css:
table.mw_metadata th, table.mw_metadata td {
    border:1px solid #565656;
