What compiler are you using? I've tried hcp and hc31.

I fear that it may be Robohelp. I currently use HDK and it quite happily
compiles tables with borders.

As far as I know, this just isn't possible. It's not RoboHELP's fault, but
WinHelp's (or the compiler's).

The best you can do is put horizontal border under each heading, simply by
bordering the paragraph.
