Well I think is doomed. I looked at the source for BorderCode and nothing good 
is in there. Whatever the signal is for Word to draw a border around a table 
is the values in BorderCode don't represent it because all I get is zeros. The 
only thing that ever causes a change is using different border colors. 

As an aside, man, this API needs a clean-up, what +is+ up with all the private 
final static variables that are never used? :blink:

I'm going to look inside TableCellDescriptor and see if there is anything good 
in there. I don't know where else this information might be although it must 
be somewhere...

And from my further reading this also seems hopeless.

This is too bad. But I think I'm stuck unless I actually start ripping apart 
the doc myself.
