"gray" lines in grids?

If I set the form in the following to "Text", the lines are either shown, or

          {"P", "Q", "¬", "(", "P", "\[Or]", "¬", "Q", ")"},
          {"F", "F", "F", "T", "F", "T", "T", "F", "\[InvisibleSpace]"},
          {"F", "T", "T", "F", "F", "F", "F", "T", "\[InvisibleSpace]"},
          {"T", "F", "F", "T", "T", "T", "T", "F", "\[InvisibleSpace]"},
          {"T", "T", "F", "T", "T", "T", "F", "T", "\[InvisibleSpace]"}
        RowLines->{True, False},
        ColumnLines->{False, True, 0.5}],
        TraditionalForm]], "Input"]

This started out as a paste from MathML using something similar to:
\<mtable rowlines="solid dashed dashed" columnlines="dashed dashed solid">

I've discovered that I can change the appearance of grid lines in TextForm
if I use integer values.  However, when I paste that back into Emacs as
MathML, lines are either "none" or "solid".  Are these just limitations of
Mathematica and MathML I have to work around, or is there a "real"

And, BTW, why the heck are the parentheses purple in text form?
