Losing anchored frame borders when publishing Framemaker 2017 to HTML5

I am publishing a short Framemaker 2017 book to HTML5. All graphics in the book are imported into anchored frames. The anchored frames (and not the imported graphic) have a border applied. In the HTML5 output, only the anchored frames that contained .tif graphics still have a border. The anchored frames that contained other graphic formats (.gif, .jpg, .png) lose their border. Any ideas?

That's interesting!

The only thing I see is that a TIF is not a web format and thus must be processed into JPG/GIF/PNG prior to display.

However, it would make no sense to convert the others to TIF just to retain the border...

Look at the HTML produced...can you modify the CSS to display a border around the images?

I couldn't find any specifcation for borders in the CSS files ('HTMLStyling.css' or in the .css created for the chapter file). Even if I add an inline style to the html file, no border appears.

The default Image Settings in the Style Mapping tab (Publish pod > Change Settings > Edit  (sts file) > Style Mapping tab) are: Border: All, Style: None. 

When I change that to Style:Solid; Color:Black; Width:1, a border is applied to all graphics. But, in the case of the .tifs, the border is twice as thick -- i.e., it appears the border is applied twice. It seems that when the .tifs are converted to .jpgs, the anchored frame (and border) containing the .tif becomes part of the graphic. But, for .jpgs and .pngs, which I guess don't require conversion, the anchored frame (and border) is discarded.
