Description mea_john 2009-03-05 09:41:59 UTC
When trying to open html with tables, Writer creates table with frame around
text in cell instead of whole cell.

HTML have a <table> with "border:none". However, each <td> element defines its
own border ("border:solid").
Writer incorrectly "transfers" border from table cell (<td>) to content of that
cell, so border becomes a property of text in cell (<p>).
Comment 8 mea_john 2009-03-13 09:17:00 UTC
I have to explain importance of this issue. 

Such html comes from database of normative documents and standards in industrial
aria of Russia ( - here you can get more information, it's
contains more than 47500 documents). In that database exist such feature as
"export to OpenOffice": from NormaCS unloading html code of necessary document,
and then automatically opens in OO. 

Considering that most of that documents contains tables and NormaCS - most
popular program in it's field, resolving this issue is extra important for
Russian corporate users.
