I read the DSSSL spec as saying that table cells should inherit their
*-*-border characteristics from the table flow object such that if
table-border is #t, then all the cell border characteristics should be true
as well. However, the RTF back end doesn't appear to do that.  Here's the
flow object tree I get:

<table keep="column" font-size="9pt">
<table.before-row-border border-present="true"/>
<table.after-row-border border-present="true"/>
<table.before-column-border border-present="true"/>
<table.after-column-border border-present="true"/>
<table-cell column-number="1">
<table-cell.before-row-border border-present="false"/>
<table-cell.after-row-border border-present="false"/>
<table-cell.before-column-border border-present="false"/>
<table-cell.after-column-border border-present="false"/>

As you can see, all the border characteristics are true for the table but
false for the cell. 

I searched the DSSSL archives on "border" and "table border" so I didn't
get any hits, but I can't believe no-one's run into this before, so I
suspect the problem is on my end.
