You're right, I was using the CSS terminology "border" to refer to the document 
property "changebars"; and indeed, the note under "limitations" does clearly 
explain that the converters are not perfect ;-}


fwiw ... even FrameMaker, the nec plus ultra of documentation tools, makes a 
poor job of change bars in tables unless the user knows the workaround

I'm sorry, my answer to your question about borders was incorrect. Now that 
I've understood that you were talking about changebars (changebars are not 
borders per se), the correct answer is almost certainly found in

Please search for "@changebar" and you'll find:

Change bars are implemented by only a few XSL-FO 1.1 processors, namely RenderX 
XEP and Antenna House Formatter . For any other XSL-FO processor (e.g. Apache 
FOP, XMLmind XSL-FO Converter) and also for all XHTML-based output formats 
(e.g. EPUB, Web Help), change bars are emulated using left or right borders. 
This emulation may give poor results when a change bar is added to a table.
