Nat, thanks for posting.

So in your attached file, are all the columns supposed to be the same 
Comment 3 eric.savary 2003-04-13 12:51:41 UTC
ES->BH: I think it's a good example of how unflexibile the table 
concept can be. It is not possible to align the vertical borders of 
the last row with the other vertical border.

Comment 5 bettina.haberer 2003-10-15 14:58:14 UTC
It is in fact not possibel to align all the vertical borders exactly
to each other. Within the scope of a border model change for OO.o 2.0,
I kept this issue on the 'Q' target.
BH->AMA: Please give approval for this evaluated OO.o 2.0 flagged issue. 
If you confirm with the target OO.o 2.0, then please keep it on your
owner (or the owner of the concerning developer) for implementation.
In case you want this issue for 'OOo Later', then please reset the
target milestone. If you decline the issue finally, please set the
resolution to 'Wontfix' (but do not close). In case of 'OOo Later' or
'Wontfix' please reset it on Bettina's owner. Thank you.

There're two possibilities to align columns:
1. the table format dialog, where you set the column width
2. with the mouse, pressing <Strg>+<Shift>, put the mouse cursor over
the wished column border and drag it to the right position.
Okay, 2. is not that exactly.
I don't want to promise an improvement for 2.0, so I retarget it to
"Later". On the other hand I'll will keep this issue in mind because
we will do some work in this area for issue 20186.
