I use the high-contrast theme becaus i'm a low vision person.  When i'm using the Writer, the theme is aplied correctly in the pages, but, when i create a table, the lines are not visible (I suppose that the lines use the default color, black, and that's why i can't see them, since the background is black, as well).  Also, when i'm editing an existing file (not created by me), the table uses the default colors (white background, black letters and black lines) or the style that the original creator used, instead of the high-contrast (black background, white letters and white lines).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open LibreOffice.
2. Go to Tools and select Options.
3. Go to Accesibility and check the first two settings in the high-contrast section.  Save the changes.
4. Open a new text document, and create a table.
5. Or, instead of creating a new blank file, you can open an existing file which already has a table inserted.
Actual Results:  
If you created a new file, an then inserted a table, you are going to se that the table borders and lines are not visible.
If you opened an existing file, you are going to see that the table uses the the style propieties that the creator selected, or, if there was not any style, Writer will show you the default (non-high-contrast) colors in the table, but not in the rest of de document.

Expected Results:  
Writer should use the high-contrast theme in tables (black background, white letters and white borders/lines), no matter the style configuration that the file might content.

Locale: es
Module: StartModule
[Information guessed from browser]
OS: Windows NT 10.0
OS is 64bit: Yes
The system is configured to use a high-contrast theme (black background, white letters and white borders) and the text is upscaled by 200%.

Reset User Profile?No.  Considering that the only change that i made to the configuration was selecting the high-contras options (since they are NOT active by default), i don't thing that reseting two options to default will solve anything.

This is a screenshot (in Spanish) of the bug that happens when you open an existing file which includes a table.  As you may see, the normal text is completely using the high-contrast theme, but the table below doesn't change at all, it still using the default style.

This is a screenshot (in Spanish) of the bug that happens when you create a new text document and insert a table.  As you may see, the borders/lines of the table are NOT visible.  Like i said in the details of the bug, i think that this is because the table still using the default color for the borders/lines, which is black, making them imposible to see.  But, at least in this case, the background does change, and the letters, as well, so it's more easy to use.

The bug is still mostly there. Now, when inserting a table using the default style, the table is displayed properly. However, when opening an existing file with a table, or inserting one with a non-default style, the table is displayed with that style instead of the high-contrast one.
