Thumbs up openoffice comaptibility with windows MSoffice

I have used openoffice(1.1.3/1.9.96/1.9.104/2.0).
These are the issues i feel to be sorted out with regards to the MS office compatibility with openoffice

1. In the openoffice-calc(Spreadsheet) If u format ur cells(border them), and save the document, send it to a windows machine and try to open the file, all the data is fine. but the cells around become blank(looks like a white page). it looks very horrible. why is this happening? What happened to the cells which were there?

2. And one other thing is CELL BORDERING. If I border the cell in Openoffice-Calc(cell border size from 1.5,2.0), i cant see the border in MS office. it appears as a dotted line. why?
if i give cell border above 2points, its visible in MS office. In openoffice if its more dark, much thick, then in MSoffice its normal....
Whats the thing thats making this happen.

I am using openoffice since long time. On the long run, it really bug you if u go into the details much.
editing , cut, copy, paste things happen normally.

Is there anyone who could help me out witha solution or a reason why this is happening?
whats making all of a sudden Openoffice Buggy?

I think it's normal that your documents look different in OpenOffice and MS Office because MS hasn't revealed the format of MS Office documents. That's why the OpenOffice programmers have to re-engineer it. They do their best, but of course they can't do it perfectly without the cooperation of MS.
