.mobi + cellpadding/cellspacing

I usually make my EPUBs from scratch, and I recently finished one and it's in tip-top shape; looks exactly how I want it to. Used Calibre to convert to .mobi, which I've never had a great deal of trouble with, and I cannot for the life of me fix these tables.

In the epub, I used CSS to style the tables, and I know that's the cause of some trouble, so I re-coded those to use old school HTML attributes, but now everything's right except the cellpadding and cellspacing aren't showing up at all. I've tried it a bunch of different ways over the last few days, and for the life of me I can't figure it out. Am I missing something obvious?

At this point, I'm just saying:

<table cellpadding="10" cellspacing="15" width="80%">

Maybe the cellpadding/spacing is too big to allow the table to display, so the ereader software is overriding it? Callspacing of 15 and cellpadding of 10 is quite large.
