btw, the only trick I know about is to use makeimage, but this
means the hyperlinks I have inside the table are lost, since one
can not click on them any more. Here is an example:

--------------------------------
\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{html}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\begin{document}

\begin{makeimage}
\begin{tabular}{|l | l| }
a&b\\
c&d\\
\url{http://12000.org/my_notes/l2hwin/index.htm}&e\\
\end{tabular}
\end{makeimage}

\end{document}
-------------------------------

and now the table does come up ok, with no horizontal
lines, but it is an image, and the link is not clickable
ofcourse. The whole table is rendered as image.

So I am looking for a different solution.

thanks,
