RTF in LibO 4.4 vs Word 2013

From the Word 2013 part, it looks as if an additional column is being added to the table header.

The reported problems are gone.

The only difference I notice now in the saved RTF is that the table "Servers | Instance Size" now breaks to the second page immediately after the header and the "Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 on Windows Azure" in the footer on the second page is aligned to the right. Will look into creating follow-ups.
