Table Borders indesign>mobi

Hi,

I've made a few ebooks in Indesign, exporting to mobi. I have made a table and selected 0pt for cell borders but when I view it on a kindle there are thick borders. What can I do?

Thanks,

Try just "border=0" (ie pixels, not points). Remember that Mobi doesn't support CSS - the conversion tool is converting the table CSS into cell attributes in the Mobi table. You want to end up with "border=0" in the final Mobi HTML; that certainly does work.

That was quick. I'm impressed.


(BTW: I need to learn to help my company lay out books in InDesign and then convert them to mobi. At this point, I'm not sure where to look for a basic set of steps for both tasks. Any suggestions? The most demanding thing I have to lay out is probably poetry with various levels of indented lines in stanzas.)
