You were right about the classpath. After testing a few things, I
noticed that my classpath in ended in ":", which was acting
like ".". Getting rid of that fixed the problem.

Agreed, since the "LOCALCLASSPATH" has all we need for FOP.

OK, that's what I figured. That way, if I change table borders, we can
actually see the difference.

You're right. I'm just trying to fix the table row borders right now (in
border-collapse mode), because it's a pain not to have it and I'm in the
table code anyway. At least some of what I'm doing will be useable in
the new layout architecture. But I do intend to get back to the layout
stuff after that.
