If you can live without shading, here a couple of ways to get borders:

* Define a paragraph style that includes borders, and apply that
style to the paragraphs in your table. You may have to adjust
column width and "space between" to get the right look.

* (For horizontal borders only) Define a paragraph style that
consists of only a border, and insert a row that contains a
paragraph of that style wherever you want a horizontal border.

The second method is easier, but neither is rocket science--they just
take a couple of practice runs.

Try HTML Indexer, the easiest way to create and maintain real
back-of-the-book indexes for web sites and other HTML documents.
