    Table Borders MIssing in JavaHelp

    soxmann Level 1
      Greetings, and happy new year to all.
      I am importing Frame 8 files into RoboHelp HTML 7, my table borders show up fine. But when I publish to JavaHelp, the table borders are gone. Interior and exterior borders, just gone.

      Any ideas? I have searched for every post in the last year for table or border, and I don't see anyone having a similar problem. I must be goofing up somehow.

      Thanks for any assistance.

          I don't work with JavaHelp, mercifully, but I did take a look at it and there is an article on my site. I recall when doing the research finding stuff that indicated borders are an issue.

          JavaHelp has not been well supported so could your developers use WebHelp. Ours could not possibly use JavaHelp, until we had some discussion!

            Hi Karl.

            Peter is correct. JavaHelp was used here when I first arrived and I very quickly got on their case to change to another output type. Borders are an issue as are numerous other things. Javascript does have a habit of rendering fairly normal things in a distinctly unhelpful manner.

            My developers used JavaHelp because the application was coded in Java. Ergo..... With logic such as that, it was any wonder the application worked at all

              Thanks Gents for your reply.
              For now at least we are stuck with the tools we have. I did look at Peter's site and grabbed that table style for the css's. The borders came out very thick with a box around the table. I played around with it and came up with the following, which looked better in our output:

              table {
              border: solid; border-width: 0px; border-color: Black;
              }

              td {
              border: solid; border-width: 1px; border-color: Gray;
              }

              It had kind of a sleek, 3D look to it.
              Again, thanks for all the help.
