Also issues w/ lines
Authored by: WAW401 on Mar 25, '03 06:56:36PM

We're an accountancy firm that uses Mac OS X client to serve-up Excel exported html files (controlled through a privilege system running on Apache, PHP & MySQL .. not that it has any bearing).

I haven't examined in depth Excel's html export code (MS likes to create more style definition than content ... I think that has to do with each Excel cell having its own style), but Safari doesn't show normal border lines exoprted by Excel, only thick border lines. The Excel export uses both, and the users who don't know any better see all lines (Explorer users) so it's no big deal. Just thought I'd mention it.
