1. You can change the thickness of horizontal and vertical lines in
the *entire* table, by changing the value of the length parameter
"\arrayrulewidth". Changing the widths of *some* of the lines is
a bit more tricky. Please see the section "Variable-width rules"
of the "LaTeX Companion".

2. Double horizontal lines can be produced by "\hline\hline" and double
vertical lines by || in the preamble. For finer control, use the
package "hhline"

3. For dashed lines, use the package "arydshln"
