I opened and Microsoft Excel Document with dotted borders (official blank). When i print it the borders looks very ugly, like ragged lines. if I try to change cell formating it appears that line style undetected (no style selected). If i change it to doted 0.5pt it minor chages the line, and still ugly on printing.
Openning the same document in Microsoft Excel 2003 looks similar, but printing looks fine (small dots with small interval, instaead of 3 "dots", maybe stroke better word for them, per border in Libra/Open office.

Tested in LibreOffice 3.3.1, LibreOffice 3.3.0 Beta2, OpenOffice 3.2.1, OOGO 3.2.1

taking it: borders drawing.

Regarding the undetected line style it probably comes from the fact that there is no line mapping for the width / style in the LibreOffice lines. Some work has already been started on that to separate width and line style in the UI.
