What the Heck is Between My Heading and My Titles?

I'm trying to wrap my entire report in a thin black border. This is going to an HTMTABLE output format for inclusion on a web page.

I can set a background color for TYPE=REPORT and see that there is this blank line between my heading and my column titles that seems to be unaddressable. I can't put a border on it. It inherits the background color of the TYPE=REPORT but won't inherit the border from it. What is this thing, and how the heck do I get a hold of it to put a border around it?

There's a similar line between the body and my footer and another line after the footer, all a mystery to me. All of these get given a unique class ID in the css generated by HTMLCSS ON and get a single nbsp; character dropped into them. Just enough to hose the output.

Bordering the TD tag that the result lands in looks awful -- there's a nasty gap that doesn't match the background color. Is there a simple way to tell Focus to just put a border around the doggone report? It seems like such a basic option I can't understand why it isn't jumping out at me from the help files.

J.

Your ears? Big Grin

Seriously, it's a very annoying line which seems to be generated by turning HTMLCSS on.

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
*
HEADING
"WEBFOCUS REPORT"
ON TABLE SET PAGE NOLEAD
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
TYPE=REPORT, SQUEEZE=ON,
FONT='ARIAL', SIZE=8,
BORDER=1, BORDER-COLOR=BLACK, 
BACKCOLOR=RGB(230 230 230),
$
ENDSTYLE
END

I don't think you can get rid of it,unless you don't use HTMLCSS ON and use CLASS= in the WebFOCUS style-sheet.

People have had some luck using JavaScript to alter the resulting HTML, which is a solution, but seems like overkill...
