RE: [xep-support] Table Border Colors Not Correct

Thank you for this information. On my machine using Adobe 8, I get some
flaky output even at 200%, however when I zoom to 3200% they borders
are all very black.


Does anyone know of a way to improve the display of table borders that
are supposed to be black? Or is this strictly an Adobe Acrobat issue?

This may be due to dithering and screen rendering issues with certain
versions of Acrobat. If you zoom in to, say, 200%, the borders are
probably all black (your PDF viewed with Acrobat 7 Professional on this
Win XP machine displays them all as quite black, at whatever
resolution). I do see borders of unequal thickness at some resolutions,


I believe this is related to the fact that RenderX generates polygons
for the table borders and fills them (to support 45-degree line ends, I
presume). I have teared them a bit apart here for this screen capture
(at 800% zoom):

        I have attached a sample FO XML and the consequent PDF output.
The border colors in the PDF output vary in color from black to gray
with no predictable pattern. However the FO explicitly states that all
border colors should be black. Any reason why the attached FO will
generate anything other than black table borders?
