Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] row/column borders for HTML tables in FO output

I see. Any idea about when we can expect improved support for HTML tables?

It sounds like I'm better off converting all my tables, or at least
those with complex layout, to CALS style to "regain" control. I have a
deadline coming up in 30 days; at that point a committee will be
deciding based on my PDF layout (among other things) whether or not to
migrate to DocBook 5 from unstructured FrameMaker.

Best regards,
Bergfrid Skaara
