But then why, as I wrote in another post to this thread, does the following work as expected? Grid[Join[{{"First", "Second", "Third"}}, Partition[Range[6], 3]], Dividers -> {{Green, 2 -> Red, 3 -> Red}, {2 -> Blue}}] By your reasoning, that "Green" first item should not work, either. (Note that the docs show False as a possible item, but that causes the same problem as None -- it causes the color specifications 2 -> Red, etc., to be ignored but the vertical divider to be drawn in Black.) So it's still seems to be either a bug or else a shortcoming in the documentation. If it's not a bug, then this is another example where the documentation of a built-in object is not complete and precise.
