BTW: Am I the only one who has trouble viewing the pictures on the wiki
page? (It seems to be the only one with which I have problems. The other
table-related pages show up nicely...)

Are you talking about what our current implementation *would* end up taking
as after border, or what *should* be taken as after border according to the

In the latter case, if you mean 'start/end', I'm game, but I don't see how
the 'after' border of the first cell to the right of a given cell could
influence the 'after' border of that cell... If the "border is determined,
for each segment, at the cell level" that seems to mean a decision at the
cell level between:

- table
- body (header / footer)
- column
- row
- neighbouring cells
    * start ~ border-end of first cell to the left
    * end ~ border-start of first cell to the right
    * before ~ border-after of first cell above
    * after ~ border-before of first cell below
- the cell itself

for each of the border segments: start - before - end - after

One optimistic note: all of the above options can't be an option at the same
time for one and the same cell... and the decision between row borders and
table borders, for instance, could already be resolved at row level, such
that, when the borders are determined at cell level, the cell only needs to
query the row, column and neighbouring cells (not reach back up to the body
and table).

If I could only see the images...
