This is an extension to a post made to JBOSS forum for RichFaces. The issue is that I see a black frame around every component: extendedDataTable, each column header, the drop down on each column header, each cell in each row. I have been attempting to manipulate the css settings but to no avail. The xhtml code is on the JBoss site. I am posting here so I can add an attachment to the posting which I can not do on JBoss forum. I have attached a jpg file.
