Writer is not formatting and bordering docx tables the same

Word 2003 shows a word table, but libre office writer shows several differences:

  1. Even with the show all, I see what
    looks like floating paragraphs until I see a roll over popup comment or
    turn on Table Boundaries. This is a print view and the borders of table cells do print, so they should not
    disappear by default.
  2. The table and underlying text is one page on word 2003 and openOffice text, but 1.6 pages on libreOffice.
  3. The cellfill/font-color/reverse in the top cell is missing in libreOffice and openOffice text.

BTW, this 'ask' web app has numbering that does not know how to indent.
