Small TableOperations patch

The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

Small TableOperations patch Can't Post

It's always annoyed me that one can create a table in htmlArea, and because it doesn't have any explicit properties, it defaults to a normally border'd table... But upon going to Table Properties, not changing anything, and hitting 'Ok', everything that was specified in that dialog is assumed, including the lack of borders.

The attached patch, at least for IE, defaults table border properties to what the default border properties are, if they're missing when the Table Properties dialog is opened.

Gecko, however, seems to be another story. I don't know how to fix that and don't really have time to try any more at the moment, but if anyone else can do it I'd be infinitely appreciative =)
