I think this issue was fixed in the past. I get a correct result for the MWE with current TeX4ht.

I can confirm that this bug is still present, at least in the deb texlive 2018.20190227.

I do not know if this was submitted before or not. I googled this and did not see anything.

When specifying a border line (vertical rule) between any 2 columns for a table (or longtable) as in \begin{tabular}{c|c}, tex4ht generates border lines around the table itself as well, as if one had written \begin{tabular}{|c|c|}

Here is a MWE


htlatex foo.tex

The same problem when using longtable. I noticed the inner border line is a little more thick than the outer border lines.

This of course does not happen with pdflatex
