table borders

I've made a table in InDesign with 0pt borders, but these show up as unwanted thick lines when exporting to Kindle, although they don't appear when exporting to epub.

If the epub is converted into a mobi in calibre the unwanted table borders disappear. I have tried unpacking the mobi and editing the css so that the borders are set to 0pt but this doesn't work. How can I export to Kindle from Indesign and keep the border settings?

Thanks,

This is probably due to limitations in the MOBI format. Check the wiki article to see what's supported.
