Is it possible to configure an org-mode table so that all border lines of the table are hidden when exported (e.g. to .tex, pdf and HTML)?

I found a similar question in Emacs.SE but wasn't sure whether it's about the same thing. The question asks about font-lock, which I am not familiar with (yet). But I am interested in consistently and completely hiding the borderlines of a table in the output as you could do in MS Word.

  • The linked question is different: it wants to hide the grid lines of the table in the emacs buffer where the Org mode file is edited. – NickD Jun 17 at 12:23

For HTML, you can add CSS to hide borders completely. By default, I get a border width of 2 and a rules setting of group. You can override these like this:

* foo

#+ATTR_HTML: :border 0 :rules none
| a | b |
|---+---|
| 1 | 2 |
| 3 | 4 |

For LaTeX/PDF, by default I get just an \hline corresponding to the hline that I have in the table separating the header from the body of the table. You can redefine that to nothing:

#+LATEX_HEADER: \renewcommand{\hline}{}

* foo

#+ATTR_HTML: :border 0 :rules none
| a | b |
|---+---|
| 1 | 2 |
| 3 | 4 |

Now both PDF and HTML output have no table borders (horizontal or vertical) at all.
